We were named after legendary tennis player Lucy Diggs Slowe. You can read more about Lucy here. Spoiler alert: she's a badass.
WHY we exist
Just 4% of online sports coverage is for women's sport – that's pretty terrible, right? SLOWE is changing the conversation around female teams and athletes by covering them properly. Because women's sport is just sport.
HOW we do it
SLOWE started as a newsletter in 2017, publishing stories of women in sport in an effort to combat the disparity in coverage between men's and women's events. SLOWE is now an online home for this coverage. We produce longform editorial, photographic essays, in-depth interviews, grassroots focussed, creatively engaging sports content. We know that creating the best content for the dedicated fans of sport is vital for progression.
We rely on the work of generous contributors. If you'd like to get involved, please get in touch.
SLOWE runs on ko-fi, taking one-off and recurring donations that go towards our mission. If you like what we're doing, please consider supporting us for as little as the cost of a coffee.
You can also support us through buying our merch – good for us and you get to look good too!
