Who's Involved

Ash Magazine is a newly launched magazine championing ordinary, extraordinary women and their endeavors in art and enterprise. The first physical issue, printed by Park Communications, is due in April. Ash aims to build a community of likeminded founders, creatives and women of strong will, who are working for the social good or who simply have stories to tell. 

100 Women I Know is a not-for-profit organisation founded by Phoebe Montague, director of an award-winning short film of the same title. Under the title ‘People We Know’, Phoebe provides workshops on consent for young people, with the aim of preventing them from becoming perpetrators or victims. 

Break the Habit Press is a new publisher focusing on books with a social slant aiming to give a voice to the unheard and the under-represented; their first series will be published throughout 2018. 100 Women I Know is their first book. 

The UN Women #HeForShe Arts Week is an opportunity for art and cultural institutions worldwide to support the goal of gender equality. Influencing culture is an important part of achieving a gender-equal world. In partnership with artists and art institutions, we can help shape the behaviours, norms and perceptions around gender.
