Wonder Woman leapt off the cover of the very first issue of Ms. in 1972. Her belief in sisterhood and equality, and the use of power in pursuit of justice, are still driving values for Ms. today – all these years later.
Now Wonder Woman is leaping off movie screens as part of our 45th anniversary celebration, returning for the fifth time to the cover of Ms. Stand alongside her in our Anniversary Issue by becoming a Ms. member! We will be printing the names of all our Special Anniversary Donors in the fall issue.

If you’re already getting Ms. delivered to your door or your smart phone, your donation will extend your existing subscription.
When Ms. started in 1972, abortion was illegal, Title IX had just passed, newspaper “help-wanted” ads were still divided by “male” and “female” and sexual harassment was just part of the job. As we look back over the past 45 years and see how far we’ve come and how Ms. magazine’s reporting has helped fuel that change, we have much to celebrate. But the gains we once thought were secure are now under constant threat. That’s why Ms.—and the spirit of Wonder Woman—is needed more than ever.
We need your help to make sure Ms. stays strong and independent and keeps feminists everywhere informed and empowered to fight for equality and justice. Your support enables us to stay free of commercial ads so we can bring you the insightful and hard-hitting reporting you’ve come to expect from Ms.
