Uplift (E-Zine, Magazine)


Uplift is a non profit making, independent women’s online magazine which acts as a place to showcase many women’s voices.

Uplift exists as an alternative to all the women’s magazines out there that put down and patronise. We want to show women that they’re not alone if they find features such as ‘the starvation tips of top models’ mind numbing. Uplift encourages intelligent engagement with the pop culture that surrounds us and offers women a platform to have their say, share ideas and get creative. All opinions expressed within Uplift are those of the individual authors.

Uplift started life as a printed publication and has been featured in The Guardian and The Observer. You can still get your hands on the first printed issue of Uplift magazine here,
