Seems like it never ends! I have emailed MS Magazine to let them know how clueless they are. Heidi, thanks for starting 51.


Of all the things I have seen, this is the one thing that I cannot find the humour in. This is seriously scary. I want to know WHY they think he is a feminist.
£50 on its way from the UK!


Nominate the issue for NOW's Media Hall of Shame.



Your piece is deeply moving, particularly your revelation about your own struggle to determine whether you have the stamina to carry on this fight. I, too, am struggling as it feels like we are so few up against a massive machine that is so large in it's sphere of influence and power. But what else can one do? I think we are too far beyond the threshold of going back, of closing our eyes, of pretending what is happening isn't happening. But, damn, it gets discouraging and it gets old to keep having this rage inside continually fueled. Thank you for hanging in - more than hanging in...for doing so much, for representing our voice, for informing, for galvanizing those of us who remain as steadfast as we can in our determination to move forward.


Wear your Hillary gear on 1/20, show the world what a real feminist looks like!


Thanks to chezmadame for the great idea of nominating the Barack Obama "Superman" Ms. Cover for the NOW Hall of Shame. I just emailed Ms. my nomination and included "everybody at Ms. who thought the cover was a good idea."


Just when it looks like it can't get badder it gets worser. But this cover is no surprise - Ms became one of the boyz some time ago.


Ms. Magazine has joined the ranks of Emily's List, NARAL, and NOW. That kool-aid must be potent stuff. I don't think any of these groups knows the definition of feminism anymore. Thank goodness for Heidi Li and 51%.


Not only does Ms. Magazine have such a cover, they are also PROMOTING AND SELLING A POSTER OF THE COVER . . .


1. TELL MS. MAGAZINE TO PULL THE COVER AND THE POSTER. Let them know what you think.

a) Write a Letter to the Editor:

b) Email their editors:
• Senior Editor, Michele Kort:
• Associate Editor Jessica Stites:
• Web Editor Alysse Bortolotto:
• Online News Editor Beth Soderberg:

c) Suggest content (e.g., an editorial on how inappropriate their cover is, what the real facts are, etc):

2. Call Ms. Magazine and let them know what you think. Toll Free: 1-800-787-1414 or 1-310-556-2515.

3. Contact their publisher: The publisher of Ms. Magazine is Liberty Media for Women, LLC which is owned by the Feminist Majority Foundation. There is also a form for comments here:

The Feminist Majority has East and West Coast Offices:
1600 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 801
Arlington, VA 22209
703-522-2219 (fax)

433 S. Beverly Drive
Beverly Hills, CA 90212
310-556-2509 (fax)

3. Nominate the Ms. Magazine issue for NOW’s Media Hall of Shame.

4. Boycott Ms. Magazine and any products they advertise. Let the advertisers know you will be boycotting their products.

5. Perhaps most importantly, can all of the like-minded women’s organizations get together, write a press release, and sign a letter from all? It would send a powerful message if a number of women’s organizations and groups were involved and spoke together in one voice.

Together we are strong!
