Love This Magazine!"
not to love about a magazine with the tag line "A woman's
guide to power and attitude"? Funky and sassy, HUES
deos feminism third-wave style, in a voice that's fierce but
also fun. HUES-brand advice: What do you do when a perv stares
at your breasts? Punch him! Looking for some real-life
"girl power"? Investigate sisterhood--and learn
how to masturbate.
that brand of in-your-face spunk--combined with an editorial
content that dares to question fashion-industry beauty--that
makes HUES one of the most interesting women's magazines on
newsstands today. While some of teh stories are a little rough
around the edges, it's clear that HUES has its heart--and
head--in the right place. It makes room for all kinds of women--not
just white, straight, skinny ones.
else cool about HUES is how it goe here--by sheer young-womanpower.
Founded in 1992 as a fashionable anti-fashion statement by
three University of Michigan students--Dyann Logwood and sisters
Tali and Ophira Edut--the magazine struggled along for six
years until the founders decided to put the title up for sale.
Prince and Princess Charming appeared in the form of Joe Kelly
and Nancy Gruver, publishers of the Duluth, Minnesota-based
New Moon: The Magazine for Girls. Now, with some money behind
their mouths, the HUES-sters will soon move from a quarterly
to a bimonthly schedule and, if Kelly and Gruver's successful
track record is any indication, reach a wider audience. (Andy
