OF COURSE woman-centered magazines can produce good journalism!Posted: December 31, 2016
A great and timely post on the Media Matters For America blog:
It highlights why magazines that consider and centre the interests and perspectives of young women of colour are producing good journalism and staying in business at the same time.
Yet another theme for my life, going forward.
“What (mostly male) critics fail to recognize is that their reasons for dismissing women’s magazines actually form the foundation of those publications’ success. Magazines created by and for women audiences — not to mention exclusively online outlets like Broadly, Refinery 29, The Establishment, and Jezebel — inherently do things differently, and that’s their strength. They’re helmed by people who wouldn’t normally see their experiences depicted on the pages of papers of record. They’re also answering to an audience of women, especially young women and women of color, by finding ways to inject otherwise untold perspectives into the political discourse.”
