When any oppressed group breaks free of their shackles, there must be a 'drunk' period - a time for celebration, sloppiness, loudness, even open abrasiveness through which centuries of brutally enforced modesty and subvervience are shaken off. Before the question "What am I without these shackles?" is posited there must be a time for the answer "I am NOT these shackles."  In this issue we examine the way women artists have approached this celebration, including exercising their right to "not celebrate" at all. The issue features Asia Argento, a gifted Italian actress whose impressive directorial debut Scarlet Diva fearlessly examines these issues, as well as startling contributions from some of the most insightful young women writers on the planet dealing with issues like Meg Ryan's fake orgasms, early 60s surfer girls, the shady 3rd waves of Mandy Moore, and Virginia Madsen!  - Erich Kuersten, Ed. 2004
