Reading List: 21 Outstanding Stories from Women's Magazines and Websites
Are women’s magazines avoiding “serious journalism”? Guess it all depends on who’s deciding what’s serious.
The New Republic asks that question in a new article, and our biggest problem with this debate (and, to be honest, the term “longform journalism”) is that it can often run everything through a male-skewed filter of what counts as “serious journalism.” We’ve seen serious storytelling in both.
The other problem is that we’re still relying on National Magazine Awards and print-only publishers to reflect the zeitgeist. I’ve mentioned that 65% of all #longreads started out in print, but we also should spotlight the work of online publishers who are pursuing in-depth storytelling.
So, here’s a start: 21 stories from women’s magazines and sites that we’ve featured on Longreads. On Twitter, Rebecca Traister is curating some of her favorite serious work. And we’d love for you to add your favorite women’s magazine stories in the comments.

1. I’m now completely debt free and my credit report came back in the 700s. Do you want anything?
2. The house is worth more than we’re buying it for. Short sales. I’m a bit nervous about having to take care of everything myself but I’m pretty handy with my hands so we’ll see.
3. There is a certification I’ve been studying for these past 3-4 months. I passed the first exam last week! My supervisors are recognizing this through my pay and I never thought I would get here. An adult making real money.
4. I’ve been focusing on forcing myself to be creative in some capacity throughout each day more than I have in the past and it’s helped in lyrics and structure. We’ve been in and out of the studio the past 2 months and we’re hitting it hard as soon as the engineer gets back from Europe in the next few weeks. I’m really excited!
5. I’m happy and I never thought I would say this but a woman has a lot to do with it. It’s funny the power a good woman can have over everything. Do you think they know?
I was having a conversation with a friend. I realized that I began talking like I’ve been looking for something and now I’ve found it. It’s not some huge revelation but more a feeling like I’m easing into something huge for my life. Does that make sense? Is that how life happens? Slow and deliberate instead of always exploding without warning? How do you handle everything?
I hope this letter finds you in good spirits. I hope you’re on the brighter side of positive through all the negative everyone has to go through. I hope the San Antonio Spurs win it all. Have a great Friday and an even better weekend.
