The Movemement Movement Issue 0 (The Starting Line) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Our first issue is an exploration of sport and movement by women voices across the globe. At The Starting Line, we celebrate starting anew, starting from scratch and re-starting all over again; something that rings true to all of us – athletes, sports-doers and those who identify as neither – following a couple of years like no other across the globe.
This issue explores body image, disability, chronic illness, winning, losing, solitude and togetherness, leaning into the dualities that make sport and movement all that it is. Our cover story features England Rugby & Saracens player, Poppy Cleall, alongside her first person account on starting again following the postponement of the Rugby World Cup.
The project has been endorsed by leading photographer, as well as Dazed & Confused magazine and HUNGER magazine founder, Rankin. “The Movement Movement fills a gap that’s been empty in the world of editorial for a very long time”, Rankin adds. “It’s a conversation that’s been waiting to happen, and now it’s here. I’m really excited to see it come to life.”
The Movement Movement is a new independent print magazine. It is an entirely inclusive space for all women and non-binary people to celebrate movement in all its forms, from professional sport to whatever ways we move in our everyday lives. This magazine is built to change narrative around sport and give women the platform to tell their own stories on movement – whatever it means to us – for the first time in the indie mag space. It is here to shake up the sports publishing space for women. Currently, it’s out-of-date, it’s male-orientated, male-organised, perfection-obsessed, and in short, it’s less than we need. Joining usis exactly that; A Movement. This is about ending the male-created and disastrously uneven playing field around sports media into not only something that is diversely made, but something so far away from constant pro-perfection that we are all actively welcomed into it. For all women and non-binary people, this is a new kind of conversation, and as we move forward, we are all invited to be a part of it.
