Verbicide includes women in one issue

Indie music rag Verbicide acknowledged this month that, much like other music publications, its coverage doesn’t include enough women. So they, much like other music publictions, decided that one issue of women as a theme or category was totally suitable (see: Rolling Stone’s “Women Who Rock!!!”)

The issue (titled “Ladies First!!!”) includes an interview with Joan Jett about being a woman in the music business (stop me if you’ve heard this one before) and features press photos that came out with her album a year ago. There’s also a piece from Diane di Prima, a famous bisexual beat poet, and interviews with Margaret Cho and Girl in a Coma.

Next month:  back to the boys’ club.
