A tarnished legacy,
This review is from: Glamour (1-year) (Magazine)
One of the greatest magazine editors ever, Ruth Whitney, made this magazine a must-read. In addition to the "10 Tips For Terrific Toenails"-type story (as Dave Barry once joked about Glamour), it had solid stories on women's issues. There were also features that dared to go on for pages and pages.
Then Whitney was ousted and they brought in the editor of Cosmo. Bye-bye real content, hello sex obsession. That was the beauty of the old Glamour: The sex was there, but so were the terrific book reviews and stories on health. And back then, it was "gynecologist," not "gyno," as in the new Glamour shorthand.
Sorry, Glamour, but it seems your focus on libido has taken away the magazine's former best feature: Brains.
