I always knew that saying the unsayable was going to be a powerful thing. ⠀ - Phoebe Waller-Bridge, creator of Fleabag. ⠀ ⠀ Proving (as if it needed proving) the scale of hunger for female-led stories, Fleabag has been a roaring success over its two seasons. As a firm favourite of ours here at Mags (and the rest of the UK too), we’re excited to see more of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s talent at creating real, honest portrayals of women in the upcoming James Bond film, after been named as one of the lead writers. ⠀ ⠀ #fleabag #PheobeWallerBridge #femaleleaders #femalewriters #inspiring #creative

There's a lot we could get done in 5 minutes if we weren't mindlessly scrolling on Instagram - a 5 minute meditation, a 5 minute phone conversation with an old friend (remember the good old days when we had no choice but to speak on the phone via our Nokia bricks?!) and now, we can learn about incredible women from history in easily digestible 5 minute stints. ⠀ ⠀ Enter, Encyclopedia Womannica. Every weekday for the next year, this podcast will explore groundbreaking women who we may not know, but definitely should, delivered in 5 minute, bite-sized episodes. You had us at Womannica. ⠀ ⠀ Show produced by @wmn.media ⠀ ⠀⠀ #feminism #womenforwomen #empowerment #podcast #audioisthefuture #womenarethefuture #inspiring #encyclopediawomannica

“For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end.” ⠀⠀ - @michelleobama, Becoming. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #MagsBookClub - We devoured every word of this memoir by former United States First Lady Michelle Obama. Michelle's raw honesty echoes throughout, as she shares her experiences in the White House, her public health campaign, and her role as a mother. Our founder Hannah also has Michelle at the top of her dream dinner party invite list (who doesn't?!) so watch this space for when we get the nod. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #MichelleObama #inspiring #fempowerment #becoming #motivational #womensupportingwomen

We've loved working with Alice on platforming stories of strength and resilience that extend far beyond the physical. ⠀ ⠀ Take Martine Wright who, after losing both of her legs in the 7/7 London bombings, has never allowed tragedy to define her story. Now one of the longest serving members of the Paralympic sitting volleyball team and playing in the 2012 Olympics, Martine talks to Alice about how the unwavering love of her family and her own mental strength saw her through the darkest of times. ⠀ ⠀ You can download the episode on all major listening platforms.
