Girls Rule, Too: Week 7: U.S. Based Magazines Recognize Women of Color

Girls Rule, Too: Week 7: U.S. Based Magazines Recognize Women of Color

Inclusion and diversity has been a hot button topic for 2016; one media outlet source that should be promoting the idea of diversity, but wasn’t, were magazines. According to Complex, that idea has definitely shifted. 

Inclusion and diversity has been a hot button topic for 2016; one media outlet source that should be promoting the idea of diversity, but wasn’t, were magazines. According to Complex, that idea has definitely shifted. 

Fashionistaa trusted website dedicated to discussing everything with fashion, conducted an analysis on the increase in diversity in magazine covers from 2015 to 2016. 

  

Over 140 U.S. based magazines were analyzed – publications included, Teen Vogue, Nylon, W, and Harper’s Bazaar, to name a few – and out of the 147 covers, 53 of them were people of color. A spike from 2015, when only 27 people of color were being acknowledged. 

It’s nice to know that when little girls read magazines, they’re going to see people that look more like them and with great aspirations.
