Ms. Magazine Celebrates 40 Years of Feminism With a Wonder Woman Cover

Great Hera!

Forty years ago Ms. Magazine busted (har) out of its insert in New York Magazine and became its own stand alone title. Its 1972 cover reflects the issues of the time: war, peace, the absurd scandalousness of women who don’t shave, and the idea that society undervalues the work of stay-at-home parents.

Wait a second…

For their 40th anniversary, coincidentally an election year that has seen number of truly alarming missteps by candidates on things as elementary as basic female biology, Ms. perhaps felt that we all needed a bit more superheroism in our lives. Check out their anniversary cover below:
