Sheilas is a national, monthly e-publication brought to you by the Victorian WomenÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s 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 debateÃ¢ï¿½Â¦ as well as throw in some light relief along the way.
Each edition includes two lead articles Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ 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:Ã‚Â a Q and A piece showcasing a woman to whom we betroth this heady title.
Culture Club: an arts, culture and entertainment Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½cornerÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ 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, itÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s also FREE! Please help us spread the word by forwarding Sheilas to your friends, family and colleagues Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ bonza sheilas and bonza blokes Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ and encouraging them to subscribe via the website or email email@example.com.
We wanted to choose a word that was synonymous with Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Australian womenÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ and complemented other online independent media in their nod to a colloquialism.
