"Wysokie Obcasy" ("High Heels") weekly magazine and online service is the most popular opinion-forming feminist magazine in Poland and part of Gazeta Wyborcza – the largest quality daily newspaper. Since 2002, "Wysokie Obcasy” has been a pioneer in introducing the Polish mainstream to equality topics such as women’s rights, women’s psychology, feminism, minority rights of the LGBTQ community and disabled people.

S/he would write articles and conduct interviews, as assigned by the editors, to be published on Wysokieobcasy.pl or also in the paper edition of “Wysokie Obcasy” magazine. The candidate would also be exposed to the high paced process of digital media creation and promotion, including social media.

The basic journalistic skills are required from the fellow. It is important that the fellow shows passion in and has basic knowledge of issues such as women’s and monitory rights and the social-political situation in Poland.

The fellow should be very fluent in written Polish.

Optional: experience in running successful social media accounts and brand promotion on social media, including Instagram and tik-tok, as well as some skills operating basic graphic design programs, would be a great advantage.
