Founding editor, Sarah Barnes, started Uplift to provide a fresh media morsel for women in search of something more satisfying than the mainstream magazine offerings. Uplift encourages intelligent engagement with the culture that surrounds us and offers women a platform to have their say, share ideas and get creative.

All opinions expressed within Uplift are those of the individual authors. We encourage constructive, respectfully expressed input and debate, as we believe that feminism is in flux and there is always more to learn. Please leave us a comment, or get involved by contributing!

Uplift started life in 2006 as a printed publication and has been featured in The Guardian and The Observer. You can still get your mitts on the first printed issue of Uplift magazine here.
