Cover of Ms. Magazine

Title

Cover of Ms. Magazine

Description

In 1972, Ms. Magazine entered publication, spreading the tenets of second wave feminism further. The magazine highlighted issues women faced that were not explored elsewhere in the media. Ms. and the message of second wave feminism gave women the language and tools they were lacking to discuss their experiences. Offering features such as a guide on how to conduct consciousness-raising sessions, Ms. reinforced the second wave feminist mantra, “The personal is political,” and reshaped women's perception of themselves and their activism outside of the home. Such inspiration helped change attitudes and policies, transforming the lives of women at home, work, and the Capitol. It connected with people outside feminist hotspots like New York and California, facilitating thousands of “Click!” moments.
