Stylist, the leading UK women’s magazine with an ABC of 400,000-plus, is releasing an issue made and created by girls, to empower the future generation and raise awareness on The UN International Day of the Girl Child (Thursday 11th October).

This is the first time a mainstream consumer media brand has allowed all of its content to be created by children.

The group of girls, aged five to 17, were drafted in to join the Stylist team to produce the magazine, Stylist’s daily email ‘Emerald Street’ and will also be taking over today (10th October).

The issue coincides with The UN International Day of the Girl Child, a day created to increase the awareness of the gender inequality faced by girls around the world. 

Lisa Smosarski, Editor-in-Chief, Stylist Magazine says, “As part of 2018’s Visible Women campaign, we asked a group of girls, aged five to 17 to take over every page of our magazine – and a day’s worth of content on our website – to find out how they feel about everything from education to their own mental health.

“The results were quite amazing – we met a group of girls from across the UK who were intelligent, articulate and incredibly strong… and who gave our editorial team a run for their money.”

The issue’s 14-year-old editor Grace also commented: “Being a girl today is also three other words: scary, exciting and empowering.”

This week’s issue of Stylist is out today, Wednesday 10th October 2018
