Parallel Magazine is a new British feminist magazine. We’re currently working on the first issue, due January 2015.
Parallel is going to be a new women’s magazine that focuses on life through a feminist lens. Aimed at late teenage to young adult women, Parallel hopes to be a magazine that can introduce young women to the concept of feminism through the use of informative articles, which will work alongside references to modern pop culture i.e. music, films, fashion, and art. It will hope to subvert the format of modern celebrity-centric and fashion-oriented magazines in order to discuss relevant issues in modern society, like body positivity.
Parallel will be liberating, and empowering. It will talk about activism and achievements. It will feature strong women who are really making a difference in this world. It will be intersectional in its content, discussing race, gender, sexuality, and disability. The key aim of Parallel is to initiate feminist discussion within mainstream society.
What can I do?
In order to get the magazine published, we need a readership, and that starts with you. The first issue is due to be released in January 2015, so effectively your donations will be acting as pre-orders for the magazine. You can either pre-order one issue, or buy a year’s subscription. Each option comes with the choice of no goodie bag, a small goodie bag, or a large goodie bag. For anyone interested in advertising, forming a partnership, or sponsoring us, we would prefer you to contact us before donating any money as we do have terms and conditions. The email address can be found below.
You can also get directly involved in several different ways.
Our first issue is open for submissions on the theme of “Liberation”, and we will accept anything from artwork to creative writing to articles to reviews.

- Female bands/musicians and/or upcoming album releases/gigs
