Sigh.

Much to our chagrin, nobody sends hand-written letters any more. It's all gone digital. That's sad, isn't it?

But, as usual, we're the ones who have to adapt. So, welcome to the very first e-newsletter from Grumpy Young Women The Blog. (We've poured ourselves a sherry to still our nerves.)

Each weekend we'll sum up our latest cantankerous writing in an email in the hope that you'll click through, read our rants in full and join in with your comments.

Grumpy Young Women: writing about life failing to be as brilliant as it could be.

On the blog this week:

A Plea for Sartorial Savvy

Why do people wear sports clothes all the time even when not doing anything remotely resembling sport? Is it laziness, or some sort of modern statement? When did it become OK for people to turn up at a smart event wearing jeans? Whatever the reasons for this behaviour, Rosie has no time for it, and she has put out a heartfelt grumpy plea for society to pull its socks up when it comes to getting dressed. Read Rosie's plea.

The Campaign for Real Eyebrows

Maddie has initiated a campaign for women to stop overplucking their eyebrows. Why do women go at their brows so viciously with the tweezers? What's wrong with a fuller brow? Don't we need our eyebrows to help us make facial expressions? Could this be a feminist issue? Read Maddie's argument.

What we're reading this week:

Brilliant new blogs pop up all over the place and, as bloggers ourselves, we think it's our responsibility to keep up, wade through the blogosphere and tell you our findings. This week we've discovered a real gem. It's called Where the bright women are, and its aim is to call out to brainy, ambitious young women, finding out what we want from life. We like this blog because it fills a gap in the media - women's magazines don't seem to have realised that many young women care quite a lot about things other than boyfriends and celebrities. Visit Where the bright women are.
