We’re delighted to present our thirteenth issue, Herland, for Spring/Summer 2022 .
What brings us here today are our dreams and the path we have long been on, despite the obstacles, the dogmas, the ever-shifting expectations and standards set for women as well as centuries of masculine imposition we have struggled to overcome – much like the society composed entirely of women that Charlotte Perkins Gilman describes in her utopian novel, ‘Herland’.

The heroes and storytellers in this issue might come from different cultures and societies, have disparate lifestyles, but essentially, they all have one thing in common: being a woman.

Welcome to Herland, the sanctuary of the feminine mind and creation.

The cover story, In my SKIN, features Sara Grace Wallerstedt,
shot by Emma Summerton, and styled by Daniela Paudice.
