Riposte is a smart magazine for women. Each issue features five ideas, four meetings, three features, two essays and one icon. We profile bold and fascinating women whose achievements speak for themselves. Our interviews are honest rather than being full of media trained responses as the women we feature candidly discuss their successes & failures, their work, their passions and perspectives.
Essays and features cover a broader range of issues than the regular fashion or celebrity focus of womens magazines these include art, design, music, business, innovation, politics, food and travel.
In this issue:
The nights are now dark, Brexit is wrecking your head and you’ve completed Netflix but fear not! The new issue of Riposte is here to cheer you up, expand your mind and introduce you to some magnificent women.
We open issue #12 with poetry from Fariha Róisín, there’s a series of personal essays on the theme of being lost, a mediation on our current use of social media and the band Girl Ray bring a new word into our everyday lexicon.
