When I volunteered to write a review of the monthly magazine Sisters for MMW last month, I had no idea how challenging it would be for me. Weeks passed with the PDF copies that Sisters had kindly sent waiting in my inbox, until my deadline finally prompted me to give them more than a skim-read. Sisters was founded by Naima B. Robert, whose book Boy vs. Girl was reviewed on MMW in 2011.
I’ve broken up my review in 3 parts, looking mostly at the September 2012 issue (and glancingly at the February 2012 issue) and focus on the following 3 aspects of the magazine: surface appearance, an analysis of some of the articles, and my overall thoughts about the magazine.
