Newsweek magazine is launching a women’s magazine in Wisconsin that covers “women’s issues” and is filled with “liberal opinions.”
It’s a bold move for a publication that was criticized last year when it announced that it would not be featuring a “Women’s Issues” section, a move that sparked a backlash from feminist activists.
Newsweek, which is owned by Time Warner, has yet to announce a specific release date.
But it is expected to debut in September, a month before the midterm elections in Wisconsin.
In addition to covering “women issues,” the new issue will cover “political issues,” and it will be the first magazine in the state to include a “feminist perspective.”
The magazine’s launch follows the publication of a book called The First Fifty Years, which covers “the roots of women’s equality and the rise of feminism” from the founding of the U.S. to the election of President Donald Trump in 2020.
Newsweek’s move into the women’s space comes on the heels of the publication in April of a new book by “feminism scholar” Jill Filipovic titled, A Woman’s Revolution: Why Women Won the War on Feminism.
The book details the history of feminism and its impact on the world.
Filipovic, who has written extensively about the politics of women, says in the book that the “history of the world is dominated by men and their ideas, which are shaped by their power and privilege.”
“The world is changing, and the feminist movement is changing.
The women who have been leading the fight for gender equality are no longer alone.
We have an army of women and men who are fighting back against patriarchy and racism.
The battle is not won in the courtroom, but in the streets and on the streets, in the parks and in the homes,” she wrote in the introduction.
“In the words of Gloria Steinem, ‘You have not won until you have changed the world.'”
Filipovic’s book is being co-published with “feminist critic” Rebecca Solnit.
A representative for Newsweek did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Newsweek is also being sued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), alleging that the company is discriminating against female employees by refusing to pay women for maternity leave.
The EEOC is seeking an injunction to stop the company from discriminating against women, and to force Newsweek to make certain that its employees have access to paid maternity leave coverage.
