Behind extraordinary ideas, there are extraordinary people. Dumbo Feather is a magazine about these people.
Lovingly compiled to celebrate Mother’s Day, this bundle is a tribute to the power of the feminine. In the pages of these issues you will find stories of strength and resilience, of empathy and tenderness, of radical challenges to the status quo, of the trials and tribulations of womanhood, and above all, of what it means to identify as female in today’s world. Gift it to one of the amazing women in your life—whether she’s a mother, nurturer, motivator, friend or mentor.
This bundle also arrives packaged in a beautiful box—the perfect gift at just $55. You can buy the Dumbo Feather Mother’s Day bundle here.
We speak with psychoanalyst Joyce McFadden who for 25 years has studied the lives of girls and women—in particular mother-daughter relationships and taboo topics such as menstruation and masturbation. Lauren Hill talks to us about spaciousness, questions of motherhood and what it’s like to be a ‘feminist surfer’ in the often hyper-masculinise world of surfing. Also featured are conversations with great thinker Krista Tippett and writer Daniel Handler.
Susan Carland takes us through her journey to becoming a writer, teacher and feminist Muslim, and invites us to challenge our ideas of what it means to be a woman. We interview Rose Rwabulhihi, who works for Rwanda’s Gender Monitoring Office, about how women have helped rebuild a broken country. Paediatrician Dr Catherine Crock explains how her love of music and passion for radical empathy led her to create beautiful soundtracks for hospital spaces. Plus you can read about the brilliant Norman Doidge, who has pioneered research into the healing power of neuroplasticity, and Israeli military-officer-turned-peace-leader Ami Ayalon.
Iconic feminist Gloria Steinem honours us with the insights and wisdom she has garnered from five decades as one of the most recognisable women’s—and human-rights activists in the world. This issue also includes inspiring chats with singer Deborah Cheetham, artist Joshua Yeldham, film producer Laurie David and writer June Factor.
Our interview with Hana Assafari covers the cultural significance of the preparation and sharing of food, and how Hana lifts women up by providing jobs for them in her beautiful Melbourne restaurant, Moroccan Soup Bar.
