McClungs Magazine

McClung’s is a feminist magazine based out of Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. We are published twice a year (in January and in April) and are largely student-produced. We started as a photocopied magazine 18 years ago. Along the way, we’ve won a Canadian Association of Journalists award. We reflect our readers – young, vibrant, smart women who are interested in eclectic, wild, weird and wonderful pop culture, politics, news and social issues from Toronto and around the world. We give our readers stories about women they can’t find anywhere else.

Montreal Serai

Our masthead says that our name is derived from the Persian word for resting place or place of transience. This etymology is  absolutely correct.  Many of us came to Montreal to rest from turmoil, to learn, to test the waters (or the proverbial snow) and to consolidate our position before returning home to  make a mark there. But Montreal has now become our physical dwelling and Montreal Serai is where our spirit dwells. What is absolutely untrue is that Montreal Serai  is a resting place.  Just the opposite: it is a space for artistic experimentation, intellectual ferment, political questioning and the creation of a new paradigm for what it means to be human.
