by Jennifer Jenkins article Los Angeles Weekly columnist Jennifer Jenkins was asked on Twitter whether she would buy the Los Angeles Women’s Weekly, the monthly edition of the women’s lifestyle magazine that was previously published by the L.A. Weekly, a women’s weekly.
She replied: I’m a big fan, but I’ll probably buy the LGW, because it has more women in it.
I don’t know, but that would be a nice change, to be honest.
The LGW has long been an issue for the magazine, which is often accused of being sexist, racist and homophobic.
In 2012, for example, it launched a $25-million campaign to buy back the magazine and replace it with a “gender-neutral” version.
The issue’s publisher, a New York-based company called Vogue Inc., is owned by the family of publisher Diane von Furstenberg, who has long championed the rights of women to publish.
Jenkins’ comment comes as Vogue is trying to sell the women of the world to advertisers.
According to Forbes, the magazine has spent $1.6 billion on ads in the last year.
The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Joanna Macy, resigned this month.
Jenks’ comment follows other recent complaints about the magazine.
In January, a female writer for the website Jezebel accused the LWR of sexism and racism and said it “shames women by promoting a narrative of the ‘good ol’ days’ when men were still the heroes and women were treated as second-class citizens.”
In June, a former LWR editor-at-large said that the magazine was sexist and misogynistic.
