Newsletters are supposed to look less polished than magazines, and the idea for a full magazine-style cover was Frank Cranbourne's idea. He worked with a friend who was an artist to create the cover art, and to develop an idea for a cartoon character called "The Man from N.E.V.E.R." (Network for the Elimination of Vaginally Elitist Rabble: It's NOW or NEVER.) I was a little slow to catch onto the idea of a full cover and this was the initial result.
Whether they are today's naked Femen protests and Slut Walks, or rallies in support of sexually assaulting men, feminist protests are enough to drive most women away.
