The latest issue of Ms. celebrates and explores the transformational shift to a new era of gender equality, with feminist women holding some of the most consequential levers of power.
For the first time in U.S. history, the presidential Cabinet appointments will reach gender parity; the House of Representatives is led by a feminist woman speaker, and feminists chair some of the most powerful committees, including the Appropriations and the Oversight and Reform committees; and Kamala Harris will be the first woman and first Black and South Asian to be vice president.
Here’s a glimpse at what you’ll find inside the upcoming Winter issue.

20. Meet the New Feminists in Congress (with Jennifer Steinhauer + Rep-Elects Carolyn Bourdeaux, Teresa Leger Fernandez and Marie Newman)
On today’s show, we planned to introduce listeners to the new feminists in Congress—and we do. But, in the period since our team at Ms. curated the design and content of this episode, another shoe has dropped in American politics: the insurrection.
We examine what the Jan. 6 riot and insurrection at the U.S. Capitol signify for our nation, including what we can learn from it. Why did it happen? Will the president be impeached? And what does this atmosphere mean for the new feminists in Congress?
