About Virago

Virago [vəˈrägō]: female warrior, heroic woman

The Virago Journal is a new breed in women’s publications. Featuring photography and written content from diverse women across the fashion and entertainment industries, these strong and independent voices will be a call to action. We aim to offer modern audiences a reprieve from content that bends to the current marketing pressures of social media and commercial demands.

Each editorial and feature will include contributor profiles, with an introduction to each member of the team. This includes everyone from the photographer, to the producer, right down to the stylist. We hope that by highlighting the personalities of each contributor and including contact information, Virago will not just be an inspiration to readers, but used as a resource within the larger creative community for discovering and hiring incredible female talent.

About Lily + Heather

Being in front and behind the camera has given us a unique perspective on the lack of content that respects and depicts diverse women without objectification or exploitation. We share a common vision for the future and understand the importance of bringing creative women together. The Virago Journal will feature work from the women who inspire us in the hope that it will inspire others.

We hope you’ll join us for Phase One —
our first print edition of The Virago Journal.
