Stylist publishes special edition “Made by Girls”
By Staff on Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Thursday 11th October marks the 6th United Nation’s International Day of the Girl Child, an observation created to increase the awareness of the gender inequality faced by females worldwide. To celebrate the occasion Stylist print magazine published a special ‘Made by Girls’ issue.
Partnering with Blenheim High School and an additional team of young women, Stylist handed over every element of this issue to girls aged 5 to 17, pitching, editing and writing all the content both in the magazine and on stylist.co.uk.
Editor-in-chief Lisa Smosarski explains why this issue is so important, “In the year that we unearth the incredible stories of women from history and those making waves in 2018 with our Visible Women initiative, we also wanted to pause to celebrate future women, too: today’s girls who will be running our world tomorrow”
“The result for me is one of strength, humour, intelligence and hope. If these are the women who will drive us into the future, then we are in incredibly safe hands. Let’s come together to protect and champion these girls, because in all of them we will find the true answer to equality.”
