Ms.Blog & Happy International Womens Day
Ms. Magazine Launches the New Ms. Blog
To celebrate International Women’s Day Ms. Magazine launches the Ms. Blog which “will showcase the sharp writing and informed opinions of a community of feminist bloggers from around the nation and the globe… introducing fresh perspectives on national and global politics, culture, media, health, law and life.” The cover above is of the first issue of the magazine featuring Wonder Woman for President.
“…After the first regular issue hit the newsstands in July 1972, the network news anchor Harry Reasoner challenged, “I’ll give it six months before they run out of things to say.”
But Ms. struck a chord with women. Its 300,000 “one-shot” test copies sold out nationwide in eight days. It generated an astonishing 26,000 subscription orders and over 20,000 reader letters within weeks. By the time Ms. celebrated its 15th anniversary in 1987, Reasoner, media soothsayers, and the nation had all been pressed to change their tune.”–Ms.Magazine
