Did we lose our heads whilst we were shopping? What has happened to feminism and where have all the interesting women gone? Why do so many women shy away from feminism? These are the themes that run through Pink Panther this month, alongside evocative art and poetry from our redbubble community.

Anna, Jenifer, Virgo, Helen and Sue,

Thank you all for publishing me and my write Mother Earth in your fabulous magazine. I’m excited, honoured, humbled and appreciative. It was a pleasure viewing the great layout, content, colour and all those published. Congratulations to everyone involved and published.

I love and appreciate what you wrote about me. Thank you very much, for it’s indeed all true:

“Humanity, in all of its bittersweet forms, is the heartbeat of Lisa’s poetry. Her zest for life and living to its fullest translates through her craft. She’s a true romantic soul who craves human connection like she needs air, and isn’t content with anything less.”

Sincerely,
Lisa XO

I so enjoyed the magazine today. From the front cover to the really cool back cover! I was so happy to see the article of Helen’s on War Rape. This is something that needs to be addressed in the news so much more & the need is urgent. It seems nothing is ever done about these terrible crimes against women & children.
The Photography section was just awesome. All of the art.
Thank you for including my creation “Secrets of My Soul You will Never Understand… Angry Red, Passion Blue but mostly shades of Green.” An honor to be in the Magazine again.
It seems not so long ago that the very first issue came to be & now #11. Cool! Great work ladies. You make us proud!

WOW….
WHERE TO BEGIN….
EACH ISSUE OF PINK PANTHER BECOMES MORE POWERFUL

…AND MORE TO DIGEST…
I FIND IT DIFFICULT TO FACE SO MANY OF THE ABUSE ISSUES IN THE POETRY, AND YET IT IS LIKE A VOICE CRYING OUT FROM WITHIN ME, ALL THE THINGS I CANNOT PUT TO PAPER. I FIND MYSELF WHIRLING THROUGH EMOTIONS AND DIZZIED BY IT ALL…

YET THE STRENGTH AND TRUTH IS A NECESSITY, AND THE VISUALS ARE CAUSE FOR SOME RELIEF, EVEN IF PAINFUL.

TRUTH IS OFTEN A FRIGHTENING AND OVERWHELMING THING. YET IT IS ONLY IN TRUTH THAT FREEDOM IS TO BE REACHED.

I SO APPRECIATED HELEN’S WRITING ON WAR TIME RAPE. HAVING SPOTLITE DEFFINATELY IS A GOOD THING “WOMENS BODIES ARE THE SCORECARDS” VERY VERY POWERFUL.

I MOST ESPECIALLY LOVE THE JUXTAPOSITINING OF HELENA’S WONDERFUL ARTWORK TO HELEN’S WRITING….
….GAVE AN UPLIFTING HOPE TO THE HEAVINESS OF THE SUBJECT MATTER…

I ENJOYED VIRGOSUN’S WONDERFUL ARTE. MOST ESPECIALLY
1. L’EYE (LIE)
2. BORN IN STEEL
3. EMERGENCE
….AND "THE ONLY ESCAPE IS INWARD’ HELD GREAT PERSONAL DIGNIFIGANCE FOR ME…..THANK YOU

’DID WE LOOSE OUR HEADS WHILE SHOPPING"…I HAVE FOUND MYSELF ASKING THOSE VERY SAME THINGS ABOUT THE YOUNGER GENERATION…
AND AM SO PLEASE TO HAVE SEEN THE LISTING IN THE BACK SEEMS TO ANSWER THIS ARTICLE…
’IF YOU ARE FEMALE"…
WHAT A GREAT LISTING!

A GREAT "SECRETS OF THE SOUL’ SECTION

….AND DEB RHODES POETRY JUST SLAYED ME ALTOGETHER AND IN PIECES…
I FOUND IT A VERY DIFFICULT READ BUT VERY WORTHWILE
AND FOUND MYSELF RE-READINGMANY SECTIONS OVER AGAIN…

I TRULY ENJOYED ELENA LATELA’S ARTWORK AND THOROUGHLY APPRECIATED THE COMMENTARIES ABOUT HER WORK…
….I FOUND MYSELF WISHING MORE OF THEM HAD COMMENTARY AS IT WAS SO VERY INSIGHTFUL.

I KNOW I HAVEN’T MENTIONED ALL THE ARTISTS….BUT I DID ENJOY
I HAVE ONLY HIGHLIGHTED WHAT STRUCK HARD AT ME…

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WONDERFUL WORKS AND ARTISTS
TRULY DESERVING OF PINK PANTHER PUBLISHING…

A TRULY REMARKABLE ISSUE…
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE PINK PANTHER TEAM
YOU ALL DESERVE A STANDING OVATION.

This feedback is so important to me and the team – and I thank you all for it.
Tammera – I am especially grateful for your thoughtful and full comment. We rarely hear what people think of the actual articles – and so this has been a treat to read. Thank you so much.

It will take me some time to work through the whole magazine so this time i ordered a copy..can’t wait to receive it.. so many great pieces of heART in it.. the poems and articles..

as for the; ‘did we loose our heads while shopping’…. i received a very interesting link from a close friend.. and maybe this could interest some of the women here as well…

“We women are at an extraordinary crossroads. So many of us feel the pull of destiny, the desire to contribute in deeper and more meaningful ways at work, in our relationships, and to LIFE itself. Often we think of this desire as a personal longing that leaves us with a sense of dissatisfaction with our lives and uncertainty about how to move forward.

But if we only think about this longing as personal, or as a problem, we miss something really important: That longing isn’t simply a personal matter. It’s much bigger than that. Think of it as a call from the future. You and all of us with the ears to hear are being called by history to write the next chapter through our own transformation as women. You are being compelled to discover your deepest purpose not only to guide your own life but also to change the trajectory of history………"
Read more here this is about a course… i’m not trying to ‘sell’ it..but just think that it can be part of change…

Jenifer DeBellis Jenifer DeBellis 1312 posts

Oh yeah, do I feel that enigmatic pull, alright! And prophetic is this call that encourages us from the future to boldly step into realms and realities never traversed by our feet before. I feel it keeping tempo in my heartbeat, and even though my mind often tries to fill me with the fear of this unknown, there is a greater excitement that overpowers these urges. It’s often the only driving force moving me through difficult days. A sort of promise of reward that I can feel in the very fibers of my existance. So here’s to changing history, one brave woman at a time.

Thanks for sharing this. I’ll have to come back later to read the link attachment, but when I do, I’ll definitely share my thoughts. xox
