Riposte #12 is here to brighten up the darker nights with wonderful women and a range of fascinating features.

We meet with writer and curator Lou Stoppard to get her take on the fashion industry and discuss her new exhibition that explores the politics of the hoodie. We ask MP Stella Creasy what the hell is going on with Brexit, writer Mary H.K. Choi tells us about writing young adult fiction, designer Erin Magee gives us an insight into running her own label Mademe whilst working at Supreme and singer Mahalia shares her ultimate coming-of-age story.

There’s a cover story that explores the impact of disability funding cuts on the people who need them most.

Elsewhere in our features section we celebrate the women of country music, shine a light on the cult lesbian pulp fiction series that still resonates today, there are funny tales of financial foolery, Kara Swisher and Aminatou Sow get into the politics of tech in 2020, we meet the designer who created her own radical MA programme after being priced out of traditional university courses and we look back at the incredible power and beauty of body builder Lisa Lyons as told through the lens of Robert Mapplethorpe.

Closing the issue, Céline Semaan of Slow Factory guest edits our second Agenda section that looks at whether sustainability at scale is possible and what it might look like.
