Parallel is a biannual women's magazine that was founded in 2014 that focuses on issues affecting women's rights and lives. It subverts the format of modern celebrity-centric and fashion-oriented magazines in order to discuss relevant issues in modern society. Parallel is liberating, and empowering. It talks about activism and achievements. It features strong women who are really making a difference in this world. It is intersectional in its content, discussing race, gender, sexuality, and disability. The key aim of Parallel is to initiate feminist discussion within mainstream society.
We subvert the format of ordinary celebrity or fashion magazines to highlight key issues in today's world. We interview and talk to influential women about their opinions, highlight key feminist community groups and activism that you could get involved in, and review, discuss, and critique women's role in the media.
We focus on everything from art to pop culture to history – all through a feminist lens.
