Riposte – Issue 13
Riposte is a smart magazine for women.
Each issue features five ideas, four meetings, three features, two essays and one icon.
It profiles bold and fascinating women whose achievements speak for themselves. The 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 women’s magazines–these include art, design, music, business, innovation, politics, food and travel.
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.
After a long Covid-enforced hiatus we’re ecstatic to be back with issue #13, dedicated to the theme of “Care” – because we could all do with some after the past 18+ months of chaos.
In our meetings section, we discuss sustainability, environmental justice and the importance of spiritual healing with Céline Semaan, founder of Slow Factory Foundation.
