Standard Issue: For women. By women. About everything.
In September, 2014, Standard Issue launched as a smart and witty online magazine for women by women, covering everything that interests women – ie everything. No celebrity tittle tattle, no photoshopping, no calorie counting, no cellulite circling. Just honest, good, interesting and funny writing from a bunch of cracking broads.
We created something absolutely excellent. And vital. A women’s magazine that didn’t pander to society’s narrow definition of what women are interested in. What we didn’t make was anywhere near enough money and so the decision was made to cut our cloth accordingly.
Standard Issue is now a smart, funny magazine-style podcast for women by women: same great content; different platform. There’ll continue to be a mix of news, opinions, life stories and entertainment, all from a female perspective straight into your ears.
Standard Issue will never tell you who to be, what to wear or how to look. We believe that every woman should feel empowered to simply be herself.
An archive of more than 3000 articles is yours to rummage in. Fill your boots.
