Chock-full of insanely talented, fearless and inspiring women, we couldn't be happier about the cast of women we present to you in our fourth issue. Our ideas section showcase reports on brilliant women from around the world including tailor Sunna Johnson and photographer/artist Petra Collins.
In our meetings section we speak to singer Eno Williams, writer Susie Bubble, curator of design at MoMA Paola Antonelli and Lindsey Hilsum, the international editor at Channel 4 News. Within our spotlight insert we have collaborated with the Anonymous Sex Journal to collate a collection of real life stories around desire and fantasy.
Features look at the science of scent, some seriously wise women and a collection of badass action heroines of the big screen. Our essays explore big questions such as how we raise boys and we decamp to the House of Lords to explore the definition of power, who holds it and how it is exerted.
Photographer Ewen Spencer closes the issue by paying tribute to his icon Elaine Constantine in a touching account of how she has inspired his career.
To celebrate the launch of our latest issue we hosted our fourth ‘live’ session where we invited people who featured in our magazine to take to the stage to talk through their work, passions or perspectives. For our latest event we had a packed schedule of inspiring speakers including Alex Tieghi-Walker of The Anonymous Sex Journal, Anne-Marie Imafidon of STEMettes, Lindsey Hilsum from Channel 4 News and our cover star Eno Williams, lead singer of Ibibio Sound Machine.
