21 MAG is the MODERN GO-TO GUIDE for YOUNG AFRICAN WOMEN.
Hi there! Hello. Hi! 🥰
The 21 Magazine is a female-focused publication aimed at creating timeless, engaging and relatable content that centres young adults and caters to the needs of African women. At our core, 21 Mag is about providing women with inspiration and guidance through content and community, while documenting women’s stories in a transparent and empowering way. We got tired of the way women are constantly under-represented in the media and decided to lend a voice to a landscape that dismisses our stories. It was important for us to do our part and create a safe space for the new generation of women to take up space and raise their voice.
Think of us as that friend who always keeps it real and gives the best advice. We’re your destination for real talk on all things that matter to you. From pop culture and sex to beauty and your career. We want you to instantly think of us when you need a safe space or have questions about everything from how to give yourself a mind-blowing orgasm to handling your finances. We’re all about wellness here at 21 Mag, so we prioritize everything from feminism to sexual health and so much more! Basically, our job is to always be here for you.
Our mission is to centre the narrative on African women by providing an online community for them to learn, grow and thrive. We believe that taking control of the way women are portrayed in the media, is important. And in the long run, we hope to be a safe space for women to ask questions about who they are, what they want, and who they aspire to be. From stories like, what its like being an asexual woman to navigating life as a blind Nigerian woman, we’re documenting Nigerian youth culture through the lens of Nigerian women.
We aim to be a household name in online media, providing millions of women around the world with content that leaves them feeling empowered and seen. We imagine a reality where more African women are fully in control of their narratives in a way that empowers them to confidently be the best version of themselves.
21 Mag is run by a small team of staff writers, contributors and creatives. We’re a small publication, so we currently have a small team but we’re growing everyday so we hope you stick with us along for the ride! If you would like to reach out, please send an email to [email protected].
