About Us

Sheilas is a national, monthly e-publication brought to you by the Victorian Women�s Trust.

Sheilas provides high quality commentary on the hottest issues of the day, with a focus on those which matter most to women, and that mainstream media outlets often ignore. Free from the constraints of a knee-jerk 24 hour news cycle, Sheilas digs deeper, bravely going where others fear to tread.

We pledge to inform, inspire, engage and spark debate� as well as throw in some light relief along the way.

Each edition includes two lead articles � the type of bold, fresh and thoughtful pieces our 3,000+ readers have come to expect. Along with news and analysis of contemporary social issues, each month expect to see:

Horacek! a commissioned new work by renowned cartoonist and author Judy Horacek.

A Bonza Sheila: a Q and A piece showcasing a woman to whom we betroth this heady title.

Culture Club: an arts, culture and entertainment �corner� combining reviews, clips, feature articles and sometimes, really good freebies.

Keeping it Reel: a regular Sheilas image section celebrating ‘Pictures of You’ – the lived experiences of real women and the smile lines they generate. Keeping it Reel is a proudly Photoshop-free zone.


How does it work?

Sheilas is published online and sent to subscribers once a month. While Sheilas is subscriber based, it�s also FREE! Please help us spread the word by forwarding Sheilas to your friends, family and colleagues � bonza sheilas and bonza blokes � and encouraging them to subscribe via the website or email sheilas@vwt.org.au.

Why ‘Sheilas’?

We wanted to choose a word that was synonymous with �Australian women� and complemented other online independent media in their nod to a colloquialism.

Writers, Contributors and Photographers Please Note:

We welcome contributions and can offer payment for some pieces. If you have an idea for an article, please send us an email sheilas@vwt.org.au

Photographers of all persuasions should check out the Keeping it Reel section celebrating â��Pictures of Youâ�� – the lived experience of women. If you wish to submit a photo for publication, please email us at sheilas@vwt.org.au.
