he Stack is excited to reveal a one-off, limited edition, concept-led print publication. Instead of burying the news that is important to women, this 20-page broadsheet brings the stories that directly impact women’s lives to the fore.
A thought experiment from The Stack World founder Sharmadean Reid and Consultant Editor Laura Weir, written both in-house and by some of the UK's brightest journalistic talent, the publication considers: “What would a newspaper look like if it saw the world through a non-male gaze? What stories would be important? How would we write headlines? What does the media landscape look like when it is shaped by women, for women?”
What emerges is a concept broadsheet that builds upon the foundations at the heart of The Stack World. Celebrating the achievements of women, discussing the challenges that face them and featuring the stories that matter to them the most.
“Too often our stories are sidelined, limited to box-out in the corner of the page,” said Reid. Adding that: “Sports sections make up almost a quarter of national daily papers, but a story about the rates of stalking, violence against women, or even women’s achievements… where are they to be seen?”
This month marks the one-year anniversary of The Stack World’s inception, a journey that has included over 600 events, a growing global community of over 3,000 members and most recently the launch of The Stack World Clubs. The latest feature enables members to monetise their own micro-communities and is a move towards the multi-billion dollar creator industry.
Though the big picture has remained constant, the aim is to power women in business. With Reid adding: “We have created a world where women are given the tools and freedom to grow, a world that puts us at the forefront, and a place where women can speak with confidence and know that they will be supported by the community that waits within our app”.
