Issue Number Two: Update!

Hi!!!!!! 

Sorry.

Happy third night of Hanukkah! Happy Eve of Christmas Eve! Happy 23rd day of December, Atheists! 

As you may have noticed, Girlish didn’t release an issue for November/December. 

Issue two will instead be released towards the end of January. Our January/February theme will explore the theme of Youth.

We know it’s a busy time for everyone, but remember, we’re always looking for new contributors! If you’re interested in joining our zine, email us (look for the link on the left)!  

Now, go off! Shop! Wrap! Loathe in self-pity! 

xoxo

Why we love Betty White.
She’s 89 years old (!!!) with a career that spans seven decades and is still going strong!
We know her as Rose from our beloved Golden Girls.  Who didn’t love her Midwestern naivete and killer comedic timing?
In May 2010, after the Facebook group “Betty White to Host SNL (Please)” rallied close to 500,000 supporters, she became the oldest person to host Saturday Night Live.  In her opening monologue she thanked Facebook and joked that she “didn’t know what Facebook was, and now that I do know what it is, I have to say, it sounds like a huge waste of time.” 
She is an animal lover with her interests in animal rights and welfare starting in the early 1970’s.  She’s donated hundreds of thousands of dollars as well as her time and celebrity to highlight these important issues.

Why we love Elizabeth Olsen.
She may be the younger sister of the Olsen twins but this girl hasn’t been riding on her sisters’ coattails.
This 22 year old already has five movies in the bag including the Sundance Festival darling Martha Marcy May Marlene.
She’s a graduate of the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.
She takes her craft very seriously - about acting:  ”I have to attribute the way I have always looked at [work] to my father, because he was a really good influence on us… He wanted us to know that we could take care of ourselves, because he never liked the idea of us needing a man.”
