Idential Magazine Covers, from 2 years apart? Yep. What’s most offensive about this snafu, however, is not the failure of these publications to produce new content or the evident implications of plagiarism, embarrassing and concerning as those things are. This generic "Get Thin Now!" "Have Sexy Sex!" advice -- which we see over and over again in women's magazines -- encourages us to believe that our bodies and our sex lives are never good enough.
Women’s magazines, like the print business overall, have a notoriously poor history of foregrounding people of color, whether inside their pages, as subjects of their features, or of course, on their covers. Progress creeps along at the most marginal pace. Are the issues through the first half of 2016 any indication of what to look forward to for the rest of the year? http://jezebel.com/how-white-are-the-womens-magazine-covers-of-2016-so-far-1778449315
