Ms. Magazine is honored for 40 years of the women's magazine in an anniversary celebration at New York City Hall. Shirley Chisholm was on one of their famous covers.
The January 1973 issue reflected on the impact of Chisholm's historic presidential run. Read the original article here.
The NY Times reported on Ms. Magazine's anniversary:
The celebration was for Ms. magazine, which, one of its founding editors has said, translated the feminist movement into print. Its first issue as a monthly publication, dated July 1972, hit the newsstands in mid-June of that year. (A one-shot sample issue had been distributed as an insert in New York magazine at the end of 1971, and there was a preview issue in spring 1972 that sold out its 300,000 copies in less than two weeks.)
