SHAMELESS Not since the glory days of Sassy has there been a tome for teen girls with
a voice anywhere near as intelligent, edgy and irreverent as our own homegrown Shameless. Since dreaming up the stylishly designed, turbo-charged mag as a senior thesis project at Ryerson, editors Melinda Mattos and
Nicole Cohen have refused to treat their readers as idiot consumptionminded clones, covering everything from activism and sex advice to DIY fashion with the wit, zeal and zerobullshit frankness of the best zines. Not only do they walk the talk by involving an editorial board of hellasmart teen girls, but their fab launch parties (featuring great girl-positive indie artists) illustrate their community-minded spirit. They’re like the amazingly cool, clever big sisters
everyone wishes they had.
