Women's studies faces the market test 

Bitch magazine is in trouble. The 12-year-old quarterly publication, which bills itself as a �feminist response to pulp culture� and has a following among women�s-studies scholars, says on its Web site that it needs $40,000 by October 15, or it will stop publishing. That�s what it costs, the editors say in a video posted on the site, to put out an issue of Bitch.

News of the magazine�s financial difficulty was posted today on a women�s studies e-mail list. One member of the list said the magazine�s title originally offended her, but she said she had come to appreciate it, calling the publication �courageous� and �refreshing.�
