About

Top-down efforts to convince us that the highest form of feminism is the girl boss have failed. No one believes today that we will be saved by the female CEO or presidential candidate. Instead, feminists are in pursuit of a NEW WORLD, at the forefront of struggles for police abolition, healthcare, and control over our work, looking toward a horizon beyond which everyone has access to food and shelter, to beauty and pleasure. We don’t want the paltry options we’ve been offered. We want it all.

Lux is short for ROSA LUXEMBURG, one of the most creative minds to remake the SOCIALIST TRADITION. It’s playful, turning the traditional women’s consumer magazine upside down. And it’s a nod to the fact that, contra stereotypes about socialism, we believe in abundance FOR ALL.

Lux welcomes pitches from new and established writers. Send a short email outlining your idea and why you’re the one to write it to pitches@ lux-magazine.com.
