Most of my clips have been in recent or upcoming issues of make/shift magazine, a print publication, where I am also the assistant editor. Clips include a write-up of the first women and climate change conference in Bali in 2014, an interview with one of the co-founders of Radical Monarchs (formerly Radical Brownies), and a review of the book “Compañeras” Zapatista Women’s Stories.” I was also the copy desk chief of the Los Angeles Review of Books, managing copyediting, fact-checking, and proofreading of their web and print properties.

Catherine (Cate) Young

I can pretty much do anything, but my favourite things to write about and discuss are the feminist intersections of pop culture. I love television, I love movies and I love talking about what television and movies say about us as a collective. I can write for eternity about the way sexuality is perceived differently by race and how history feeds into those assumptions, but I can also write about the amazing way that Frozen subverted the “true love” trope and what it means to have overtly feminist media representations for children. If you need something written about pop culture, I’m your gal.
