A gen­der is­sue?

Last week’s is­sue mark­ing In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day at­tracted a huge amount of com­ment from read­ers on the blogs; here’s a se­lec­tion of what was said

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Comment -

Women’s Day - if we can’t make a bit of a song and dance about how fab we are to­day, when can we? should be down to the MU­SIC and MOVIES that are made and NOT some­one’s gen­der. Please re­vert to the nor­mal Ticket next week. As a fe­male mu­sic-maker, I am hugely in­sulted by this is­sue. Are you say­ing that I need a spe­cial is­sue to com­pete with The Boys? Next week: Nell McCaf­ferty re­views the sin­gles?– this. It’s a cel­e­bra­tion of fe­male artists on the week­end of In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day. Hardly a con­tro­ver­sial ed­i­to­rial de­ci­sion. I found it an en­joy­able read, and a great way to mark IWD week­end.
