Wednesday 14 February 2007 8.32pm is a relatively new women's website: is a place where self-aware, urban goddesses of all ages mingle online. By signing up for free weekly marmaMAIL, girls become marmaLADIES and join the 'new-fashioned' urban sisterhood. Each week they are updated with gems about local doorstep discoveries, inspiring tales of every-day heroines and recommended independent businesses.

and now it has a feature on Bermondsey & Bankside! I personally love the website and its features anyway, but am a little surprised that Bermondsey was the latest addition to a list which previously comprised Primrose Hill, Fulham, Battersea and Islington. It's all good though.

The problem with is that there is nothing to set it apart from every other women's magazine. Every women's publication currently in existence is designed to make us 'self-aware, urban goddesses' and that's the problem. I don't see any evidence of this 'new-fashioned urban sisterhood'(?). For example, I still cant see any evidence of the presence of womens groups or 'everyday heroines'(?) or anything that encourages women to think or act outwardly. Too often we are encouraged to think of our appearance, our career, our homes- nothing about other people. I think this magazine just supports the stereotype that women like nothing more than to shop, which is a real shame. sounded promising, but the editorial, like every other women's publication is still very superficial- there is nothing to make you sit back and think or want to take action. The marketing tag lines are also incomprehensible. Can anyone explain what on earth is meant by 'heart, home and hearth' problem-solving'?
