So... Antigone Magazine launched it's Summer Subscription Drive this weekend with a goal of getting 500 subscribers to our print magazine by the end of September. As a subscriber, not only will you get to read a great magazine about women and politics - but you will also help support the creation of the Antigone Foundation, a non-profit organization that will work to encourage young women aged 10-30 to get involved in politics and issues that affect women!


So, please help out! Forward the below e-mail onto all your contacts, subscribe to the magazine yourself or offer your talents to help our dreams for gender parity come true! We need graphic designers, website designers, bloggers, advertising coordinators, event organizers, grant writers, people to send out targetted e-mails to politicians and women's groups... and just about anyone with a passion for women and politics! E-mail us (antigonemagazine@hotmail.com) and we'll put you to work!


Are you a university student? Try to get your school to sponsor Antigone Magazine's publication on your campus! E-mail us and we'll send you a kit to get started at bringing our magazine to your university/college!


Want to a free sample of our magazine to send out with your e-mails? Just e-mail us at antigonemagazine@hotmail.com and we'll send you one!



Dear Friend,

Antigone Magazine is a semi-annual, non-partisan magazine about women and politics written by young women in Canada. We are currently launching our Summer Subscription Drive and Contest with the hopes of getting 500 subscribers by the end of September! We ask you to read this e-mail, take a look at the attached copy of our magazine and support Antigone by buying a subscription and forwarding this e-mail on to women or men of all ages who you think would support the work we do!

Our primary goal is to encourage young women and men to see women as leaders within Canadian society, as well as, to encourage women to engage politically within their communities, their country and the world. We pride ourselves in being a magazine about women, politics, women in politics and the politics of being a woman and have interviewed women from all political parties, including former Prime Minister Kim Campbell and Green Party Leader Elizabeth May.

Antigone is seeking to expand to universities across Canada. Our first step in this endeavour was the creation of our blog http://www.antigonemagazine.blogspot.com/ where we hope to reach women and men across Canada and around the world. Our ultimate goal is to start a national foundation that will work to engage women aged 10-30 in politics and issues that affect women.

We hope that you will consider purchasing a subscription ($12 for one year) and joining in our Summer Subscription Contest. We want to reach as many people as possible, and so we want you to forward this e-mail onto all of your friends and contacts.
