Letter from the Editor:
The Bigger Concept
A lot of people have asked me why I decided to create Lipstick and Rage. The answer stems from a lot of different places. To highlight local women and activists, who are all making change in their own way. To give an opportunity for deep thinking activists and community leaders to share their perspective. But the biggest reason why I created Lipstick and Rage was to begin to get everyone to look at the issues as a part of the bigger concept, rather than looking at them all as individual problems.
At this point, I would like to note that if you are still wondering what I mean by the bigger concept, that is for you to think about and decide. Your perspective on it depends on what limits you put to your thinking. We hope that you will enjoy reading our pieces and maybe begin to look at things in a little different way, as a part of the bigger concept.
I could sit here and give you the facts - tell you what the issue is, what legislation has been proposed, and give a surface level explanation of why it needs to be fixed. But that is nothing more than a 30 second google search. That's not what we're here to do. We're here to give a different perspective on issues that we have worked on fixing, and even bring up issues that you might not have thought about before. We are here to just begin to examine the complex roots of these issues. We are here to explain how they connect to daily life and our society as a whole. The bigger concept.
