About me:.. ..»-(¯..v..¯)-».. Design your MySpace with MyLook ..«-(¯..v..¯)-«.. ‘Vogue loves indie mags…Hogarthian graphics and modern feminism from Pamflet.’UK Vogue, September 2006 ‘Pamflet is the photocopy-quality soapbox for two young, sarky post-feminists from London who want women’s rights and the right to wear pretty things, and want it, like, yesterday.' Sunday Times Style Magazine, September 2006 Pamflet is called ‘pamflet’ for three reasons: 1. It is a pamphlet. 2. Its creators’ initials spell ‘pamf’, so they added the ‘let’ bit on and it looked good. 3. Pamphlets were the eighteenth and nineteenth century literati’s medium of choice for starting feuds, slandering rivals, spreading gossip and ranting about everything from politics to literature. That’s what we want to do too, so it makes sense.
Anna-Marie and Phoebe follow in the footsteps of a long line of bluestockings, counting Mary Wortley Montague, Mary Wollstonecraft, Mary Shelley, Jane Austen, the Brontës, Virginia Woolf and Margaret Atwood among their esteemed predecessors.
Pamflet magazine is the culmination of girlhoods gilded with fierce magazine-mauling, journal-writing, letter-scribbling, email-keying, scrapbook-keeping, book-devouring, indie-loving, outfit-styling and culture snacking.
Pamflet editrixes Anna-Marie Fitzgerald and Phoebe Frangoul are from suburban London but now locate themselves on the fringes of a twenty-something world that doesn't actually exist. They have showcased their unique style nous in the fashion pages of The Guardian and Plan B Magazine and ranted in their young-feminist guise for Marmaladya, The Sunday Times and Metro. This series of pamphlets establishes them as the dissenting voice of the new generation of twenty-first century women. So there.
