Riposte is a smart magazine for women. We're a new magazine which offers intelligent content and inspirational women in a beautifully designed format. We profile bold and fascinating women whose achievements speak for themselves. Our interviews are honest rather than being full of media trained responses, as the women we feature candidly discuss their successes, failures, work and passions.
Each issue will feature five ideas, four meetings, three features, two essays and one icon. Essays and features will cover a broader range of issue than the regular style/fashion focus of women’s magazines, these include art, design, business, music, innovation, technology, politics, food, style and travel. We will close each issue by inviting one woman to select her icon. To pre-order your copy, click here.
When it comes to describing Isadora Duncan’s approach to her life and art, ‘uncompromising’ doesn’t cover the half of it. At the turn of the last century, the untrained performer single-handedly changed the direction of modern dance with her naturalist movements, while also finding time to careen wildly between continents, bank accounts, and lovers.
Full of passion and heartache, Duncan’s life reads like a Greek tragedy: extreme poverty and wealth, whirlwind romances, far-reaching fame, insufferable losses, and at age 50, death due to a tragic accident. Ananda Pellerin takes a look at the uncompromising and inspiring life of Isadora in light of the recently released, restored edition of My Life.
