Ms Magazine: An Oral History by Abigail Pogrebin

| October 31, 2011

The New York Magazine published an article yesterday by Abigail Pogrebin titled "How do you Spell Ms." This fascinating oral history examines the birth of the first periodical ever to be created, owned, and operated entirely by women. The article features the voices of Ms. launcher and WMC co-founder Gloria Steinem, original Ms. co-editor and WMC's current editor in chief Mary Thom, and various other respected feminist voices. It’s great to see such a touching tribute to these impressive and ground-breaking women in New York Magazine and it’s especially inspiring to a new generation of young feminists like me.
