The contribution of m/f to feminism was, and continues to be, of immense significance. The only feminist journal in England consistently devoted to the development of theory, it created - in the face of many orthodoxies - the space for an important new form of work. At the vital interface of social theory, representation and psychoanalysis, m/f provoked intense debate among feminists, raising issues which still act as a crucial point of reference for much feminist thinking to this day.
