Riposte – Issue 06
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.
Reports on a selection of ideas from around the world.
