Another Gaze was founded early in 2016 in response to the difficulty in obtaining rigorous writing - whether online or in print - about women and film: its sources being disparate, or access requiring membership of an academic institution or the will and resources to get through a ‘paywall’. We are the only self-published printed feminist journal available today.
Feminist criticism is not, and should not be considered elite or specialist; nor should it require the reader to have a university degree or be a self-proclaimed 'cinephile'. Particularly since the advent of the internet, young women, queer people and people of colour, have had the opportunity to discover films which reflect and affirm their lives and aspirations in a manner which is harder to find in the prescribed male canon, and to create their own.
