Founded as an online publication in 2008 in Houston, Texas, Brown Girl Magazine is now a multimedia company with a global reach.  

Brown Girl Magazine was created by and for South Asian women who believe in the power of storytelling as a vehicle for community building and empowerment.

Our Mission 

 We empower and engage those who identify as South Asian women living in the diaspora with a hyphenated identity.  

Through features, interviews, opinion pieces and videos, you’ll find a variety of topics covered including trending news, politics, entertainment, beauty, lifestyle, love and relationships, religion and culture.

In addition to publishing hundreds of stories online, we have also built an offline network of supporters who attend our local events and help us become a sustainable business.

Our Story

Brown Girl Magazine provides a digital stomping ground for South Asians to share an unabashed platform for self-expression, cultural anchoring, and dialogue.

While our primary focus is to empower and uplift women, we support and ally with all gender identities. Many men have also joined us and the feminist movement, comprising 30 percent of our readership.

Thousand-year-old stigmas and taboos are fiercely chipped away with our diverse content, local and virtual events, and dynamic social media presence.


Our Vision

We will continue to serve as an anchor for South Asians who believe in gender equality by remaining steadfast in publishing multimedia content that provides connectors between our readers and the trailblazers, community leaders, and badass women in our global community.
