Woman Magazine Is Now On Sale: New Zealand’s Newest Magazine Launches Monday 12 October


Woman, the first of School Road
Publishing’s new local magazine titles, launches on
magazine stands nationwide and online from tomorrow (Monday
12 October).

Packed with features about New Zealand
women, for New Zealand women and by New Zealand women, the
inaugural issue features iconic Kiwi sporting champion Dame
Valerie Adams on the cover with a revealing story about her
challenging year. In a wide-ranging interview, she talks to
Woman about her Olympic Games
disappointment, her baby boy’s devastating diabetes
diagnosis and the importance of her Tongan culture and
faith.

Sido Kitchin, Editor of
Woman and Group Publisher of School
Road Publishing, says: “I’m thrilled Dame Valerie was
happy to appear on our first cover as she is the epitome of
what I want Woman to be – strong, warm-hearted,
authentic, inspiring – and proudly Kiwi. Dame Valerie is
such a positive person, but she’s had a tough year like
many of us, and women will be moved by her openness and
honesty.”

The
inaugural issue of School Road Publishing’s
Woman magazine features Dame Valerie
Adams on the cover.

The magazine also includes
features with celebrated microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles,
political editors Jessica Mutch, Jane Patterson and Tova
O’Brien, Stuff CEO Sinead Boucher and drag queen Kita Mean,
as well as stories about Kiwi nurses on the frontline, the
resurgence of the malu (traditional Samoan tattoo) among
women, and a look at mental health in the year of
COVID.

“At this pivotal moment in history, I think
the time is right for a local magazine that understands our
world has changed and so have our priorities. I hope readers
find a magazine that reflects and resonates with what it is
to be a New Zealand woman today. My belief is everyone has a
story to tell – and the need to tell their story. This is
particularly true of women in times of uncertainty; it’s
what we do – we talk. Woman is a place where Kiwi
women from all walks of life can do just that and connect
through the power of shared stories and experiences in print
and online.”

Woman content
pillars include New Zealand stories, Culture, Food, Health
& Wellbeing, Parenting, Home & Garden, Fashion &
Beauty, Te Reo, Books and Entertainment. The magazine boasts
many of New Zealand’s most-loved columnists and
contributors, including School Road Publishing’s Food
Director Nici Wickes alongside Gemma McCaw, Rosemary McLeod,
Polly Gillespie, Sarah-Kate Lynch, Stacey Morrison, Suzy
Cato, Niki Bezzant, Sarah Laing and more.

Beyond the
fortnightly print publication, Woman
will connect with New Zealand women 24/7 across its dynamic
digital community, incorporating a website, womanmagazine.co.nz,
as well as social and eDM channels.
