Have you read Frankie Magazine?

Frankie is an Australian magazine and could only be described as inspiring. It is so nice to read something different to every other magazine on the market. I can't say I always agree 100 % with the points of view expressed but as an individual with very much my own mind, I rarely agree with others. Nothing offends me. Nothing shocks me but everything interests me. An article about working mothers caught my eye and I loved the boldness of the article. The fact that it didn't oppress women and criticize them like many media outlets tend was refreshing. The point was so simple. You can be a good mother and have a good career. I believe in that. Why do we have to give up one dream for the sake of another? Why isn't the sky our limit? I don't get it. In a modern 21st century society why does it sometimes feel as if we are still pushed into making so many sacrifices. No. I am not a feminist, well maybe a liberal feminist in the loosest of senses. I just want things to be equal.
I do not own this picture. Taken from the website.

So what else is Frankie about? Well if you love art, culture, travel, history, literature, fashion, photography, crafts, music, cooking and being inspired then this is the magazine for you. The articles are interesting. Written by both men and women, different issues are raised and opinions expressed. The magazine is modern but with a clean and kitsch vintage feel. It has a young, fresh voice teamed with a bit of wisdom. Perfect for so many different ages and different types of people. It might not be for you. But there is no harm in checking it out.

Let me know what you think or whether or not you decided to check it out? Feel free to argue against any thing I have said during this post or to let me know if you agree with me. Hearing from you guys is always good!

I agree with that - why not make the sky the limit! We live in a very modern world where women are starting to be really equal in all aspects with men. I'm a very opinionated person so like you, I also like hearing opinions from others :)

I have never before heard of this magazine - but maybe that's because I'm in the States. I may need to seek it out! :)
