“The Body Issue” is centering around the female body, articles feature personal stories about sexual assault and eating disorders, critical discussions about the future of pornography and consent, the glorification of Victoria’s Secret models, critiques of one size fits all policies, and more.

As a warning, some articles in The Body Issue contain sensitive and potentially triggering material, which include sexual assault depictions and violence against women. As an organization who strives to tackle a wide range of gender topics, our second issue does not shy away from controversial, yet important discussions about female sexuality and gender. Lifting different voices, the GIRLTALK brings forward the diversity of female experiences around the globe.
