The Victory Press is a publication dedicated to women's sports and intersectional feminist issues related to sport. We pay our writers and reimburse expenses.
We publish features and essays related to feminism/gender/social issues as they pertain to sports, with the goal of making the Victory Press an inclusive home for quality writing on these issues. We also provide coverage of professional, international, and collegiate women's ice hockey.

We are open to sponsorships and would be interested in athletic gear/products for women and trans athletes in particular. If you'd like to be a sponsor and have your brand featured on our site, contact [email protected]
Send pitches to [email protected] Pitches can be about any women's sport or any social issue in sports related to gender, class, race, etc. Pitches can be for a single feature article or for a series of articles you'd like to write over a period of time.
Examples of things we would be interested in include coverage of a women's sports tournament or event, essays about gender issues in sports, interviews, and longform media criticism. We may occasionally accept pitches for personal essays that fit into the broader theme of being a sports fan as a woman, LGBTQ person, or person of color.
Pitches should be short and to the point, and clearly state your article's purpose.
Our theme is Iris, with customizations by Zoë. We're a hosted instance of Ghost.
In-line typefaces on the site are PT Sans Caption and PT Serif.
Our wordmark and other graphics are styled with Frontenac by Jérémie Dupuis.
