Do you really need another magazine telling you how to feel good about yourself and on the next page featuring yet another glamorous but seriously underfed model in order to sell you the latest celebrity fad diet book and handbags one can only ever dream of affording?
Life is complicated enough without being spoonfed unrealistic and unattainable ideals of the “right body”, the “right bling” and the “right way to give a blowjob”.
lip is for girls who think, feel, create, speak out and live. Girls who aren’t afraid to be themselves.
We explore these themes through the writing, art, fashion, photography and vision of our contributors. lip brings you fun, informative and truthful articles and fiction reflecting your lives, your dreams and your world. We share stories and art by real girls that will make you laugh, make you cry and give you something to think about.
Young women deserve a magazine that recognises the diversity of our interests and reminds us that feminism isn’t a “dirty F word” or an outdated concept. Feminism is about valuing our minds over our bodies. It’s about considering how our culture and media influences our view of ourselves as feminine.
As a feminist magazine, lip will show you the world as a place of multitudinous possibility by publishing articles about girls, about boys, and about issues that influence the way we live our lives. lip will focus on creativity; activism; careers; physical, sexual and mental health; fashion; travel; and many topics that reflect our thoughts, feelings, confusions and celebrations as we mature into fabulous women.
