Ms. is Turning 44! Celebrate With Us and Become a Ms. Partner

When Ms. magazine launched, the pundits were predicting the magazine would run out of things to say in 6 issues. 44 years later, our reporting and truth-telling still fills the pages of what’s been called one of the most influential magazines in U.S. history. But we need your help to make sure Ms. stays strong and independent and – especially at this crucial time – keeps feminists everywhere informed and empowered.

That’s why I’m inviting you to become a Ms. Partner or Lifetime Community member today.


There are two ways to become a Ms. Partner – you can make a one-time tax-deductible gift of $44 or more (a dollar for every year that Ms. has been truth-telling and trailblazing), or join our monthly sustainer program – at $4, $10, $15 or $25 or more a month. With a donation of $1,000 or more, you will become a Lifetime Member of the Ms. community. And if you act now, you can double the impact of your contribution: An anonymous donor has pledged to match dollar for dollar the first 225 new Ms. Partners.

As a special thanks, when you become a Ms. Partner or Lifetime Member, we will list your name in a special section of our historic fall Anniversary Issue.

For 44 years, Ms. has been challenging the status quo and shaking up the world. Our bold leadership and courageous storytelling can bring about even more significant change for women and girls in the years to come.

Ms. Partners and Lifetime Community members make it possible for us to continue providing insightful and hard-hitting reporting and ideas to readers like you. Become one today and help keep Ms. strong.
