We need to start talking about why we are asking men to get bolder and telling women - literally and figuratively - to shrink. By the way, the author of "The Incredible Shrinking Woman" article in the Chicago Tribune -- Anne Ream -- is also the founder of The Voices and Faces Project, which deals with sexual violence. Which is a reminder that all of these forms of oppression -the unfair female body ideal, violence against women, race, class -- are really linked.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
