It’s been too lovely a day to end it on a negative – how’s this for a positive? The future Australian magazine Young Vagabond is seeking funding via Pozible and has thirty days to do so:
Young Vagabond is a new magazine for teenage girls, offering an alternative to other print publications, which often have an unhealthy focus on image and sexuality.
Our aim: Through Young Vagabond, we aim to give young women a voice, and a magazine that they want to read. A magazine that doesn’t try and force them to look, feel or act the same as every other girl, doesn’t make them feel like they aren’t good enough, and that doesn’t underestimate what they are capable of!
Young Vagabond will be created with the potential of all women in mind. However we see no better place to direct this message of empowerment than at teenage girls. Teenagers have the freedom to choose who they will become, and Young Vagabond will set out to show these young women that their individuality, their distinct interests and capabilities, are worth developing and having pride in.
Because young women have broad and varied interests, Young Vagabond will cover a broad range of topics. We will feature articles relevant to being a teenager, and while this can include topics such as beauty, fashion, sex and relationships – it also very much encompasses articles that are relevant to the world at large.
