Tired of the condescending messages they were being fed by mainstream media, Chiara Mazzucco, Julie Zantopoulos and Chrystal Rose, joined forces and launched The Indie Chicks, a print and online magazine with a message of self-empowerment. “The Indie Chick is everything that mainstream media for women is not.”


Today, covered with popular headlines found in women’s magazines,  Chiara , Julie and Chrystal took to the streets of NYC to promote their Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for their fall print issue. WYSK caught up with the fearless women in New York’s Washington Square Park to learn more about what they are doing and why it’s important.

“We need magazines that empower women, not magazines that feed on the insecurities of women. Mainstream media speaks to women in a degrading way, telling you that you just aren’t good enough. We want to create a positive media voice for women, and be the boost and empowerment. We want to start a revolution!”

Looks like they are well on their way!
