Even so, MS. is not without its faults. I've been an off-and-on reader (finances permitting) since my senior year of high school. In the past decade, MS. has evolved little. Back in '97, when I was still puttering along on dial-up, I read the local newspaper daily; now, I take my news online, thank you, and throw in a variety of left-leaning blogs for good measure. Published quarterly, MS. simply can't compete with the speed and ease of the internets. Much of the news that they report on, for example, is months old by the time the magazine hits the stands. The in-depth analysis is still insightful, however, it's not always as timely as it could be. Additionally, the work of some progressive feminist bloggers (such as Amanda Marcotte of Pandagon, Jessica Valenti of Feministing, and Jill Filipovic of Feministe) rivals that found within the pages of MS. (and...it's available for free!). It would be awesome if MS. upped their publication schedule to once-a-month (as they did prior to 1988), and solicited the occasional feminist bloggers for guest spots. I don't expect MS. to go the way of its sex-positive younger sisters, BUST and BITCH (the latter which I highly recommend, especially for younger feminists), but a mini-makeover is in order.
I'm still an avid MS. reader, though, so I guess a slightly antiquated `80s version of MS. is better than no MS. at all!
And Ms. did/does deserve some of those charges. Having been around so long, Ms. is an institution of its own, less flexible than (comparatively) recent upstarts like Bust. Despite its book reviews and lists of feminist DVDs, it isn't devoted to critiquing pop culture and engaging with younger, teenage readers. Ms. doesn't offer them the instant accessibility of Bitch's analysis of Taylor Swift, for example; it talks Somalia and US Senators, demanding close, attentive reading. And as Ms. has aged, so too has its authorship, with many familiar bylines repeating over the years, though that's not to say they haven't worked to recruit new (and some younger) writers as well. Ultimately, Ms. has stayed true to the hard-hitting, committed second-wave feminism it has fought for for so long; that's NOT a bad thing. I'm glad I grew up enough to finally feel like I grew back into Ms. magazine.
Although I highly recommend Ms. magazine - it's a great educational read, thought-provoking and consistently inspiring - I wouldn't recommend it for those who are just starting to get into feminism. Ms. may be the standard for a reason, but it's not a simple, easy read; it's not meant to be. Once you're in, though, make sure Ms. is one of your subscriptions; there just isn't anything else quite like it out there, still, and its voice is one that deserves to be out there and heard.
