The Victory Press is a news outlet dedicated to covering women's sports and sports in general from an intersectional perspective.


We also 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.

Any amount of support goes directly towards paying our writers and editorial staff for their work, reimbursing expenses, and covering expenses for our website.

Right now, we provide coverage of the following sports:
  • ice hockey (NCAA, CWHL, NWHL, international)
  • basketball (WNBA)
  • soccer (NWSL)
We also currently publish feature content on social and gender issues in sports.  

We prioritize coverage of social issues and original reporting.  Check out our ethical coverage and business policies here: https://victorypress.org/victory-press-reporting-policies/

We pay a monthly staff writer stipend for our writers and travel expense reimbursement so that they can get to the sporting events that they want to cover. 

We want to be able to solicit writers and editors who are familiar with other sports and publish unique, exclusive stories about those too.  We're interested in all types of college sports, Olympic sports, professional wrestling--pretty much anything you can think of.  We'd love to grow our editorial staff to include writers who know more about these things, and provide you with thoughtful, independent coverage that you simply won't get anywhere else.  (And of course, once hockey season rolls around again, we'll be providing you with the same dedicated coverage that you are used to seeing.)

To give you an idea of the diverse body of writing we've been able to publish so far:
If you like any of this work, consider telling your friends.  If you'd like to be a part of it, feel free to pitch us.  And thanks always for your support!

Goals
$647 of $700 per month
We currently stipend staff writers and editors at $135 per month if they write a weekly article or work to put out regular coverage, with other freelance work that is not on a weekly schedule being reimbursed on a case-by-case basis. $700 allows us to stipend four staff members with extra left over for expenses (like web hosting) and freelance work.
