Riposte started off with founder DANIELLE PENDER’s vision of creating a smart magazine from a women’s perspective and with every outstanding issue, they are succeeding in ways more than one. Right from referring to the magazine as ‘her’ to having an alternate text only cover with the aim of focusing on 'who' their interviewees are, as opposed to 'what they look like' - the publication is breaking the notions and clutter that surround the idea of a women’s magazine. This issue questions gender gap, delves into the pursuit of happiness, and attempts to turn data into real people. Packed with honest interviews of women who candidly discuss successes & failures, their work, their passions and perspective, it a treat for both the mind and the soul.
