Fem (magazine)

Fem is a major feminist magazine and the first Latin American one. The idea for it was conceived in 1975 during a conference in Morelia, Michoacán, and it was established in the following year by Alaíde Foppa and Margarita García Flores. In 2005, its director, Esperanza Brito de Martí, reported that the print version was being discontinued due to high costs and from then on, the magazine would only be published online. The magazine focuses on social and political issues, art and cinema. It contains news, poetry and short stories. Topics range from domestic violence to health care, women in the student movement, AIDS, prostitution, and Chicanas.
