Ms. Magazine was founded in 1972 by Pat Carbine, Gloria Steinem and others. After
seventeen years of publishing, Ms. Magazine was re-relaunched in July of 1990 as an
advertising-free, all editorial product. Under the editorial direction of Marcia Ann
Gillespie, Ms., now published bimonthly, features an editorial mix of international
and national women's news, investigative reporting, personal narratives, humor, world-class
fiction and poetry, and prize-winning journalists and feminist thinkers.
