Riposte – Issue 10
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.
Issue #10 is here! Making it to double figures is a cause for celebration so throughout this beauty of an issue we salute and celebrate women who have inspired us, challenged us and made us think differently.
We have fun and fascinating conversations with a collection of smart women including rapper Princess Nokia, choreographer Holly Blakey, filmmaker Crystal Moselle, Creative Director at Google Creative Labs, Tea Uglow and Karley Sciortino and Cindy Gallop have forward-thinking conversation about sex.
We cover a whole host of topics through a celebratory lens including death, masturbation, childbirth, Igbo life lessons and The Duchess of York’s scandalous toe. The full roll call of features include;
An Ode to Fergie’s Toe - we celebrate the scandalous Duchess of York
W.O.W - Anarchy with the Plasmatics
Death as an Adventure - could embracing death help us live a better life?
New Heritage - four fashion designers honour their heritage with a new edge
Call Me By My Name - Fauzia Musa refuses to put up with mispronunciations of her name anymore
Behind Closed Doors – we explore the lewd luxury of hotels
Over to You, White People - Reni Eddo-Lodge isn’t interested in performing outrage for white people
Forbidden Fruits - why don’t we talk about female masturbation?
What A Time to Be Alone - life lessons by way of Igbo proverbs from Slumflower
Real Talk: Midwives - what really happens when you have a baby?

We close the issue with our ultimate issue #10 icon – Justine Frischmann
To mark our tenth issue we have commissioned three special covers from photographers Steph Wilson, Izumi Miyazaki and Devyn Galindo. Each photographer responded to the theme of celebration and created three stunning covers you can choose from below.
