Celebrating 50 Years of Ms. Magazine with the National Women’s History Museum


This Sunday, July 24, join the National Women’s History Museum for their Sundays@Home digital programming series—this weekend, themed “Celebrating 50 Years of Ms. Magazine.”

A brazen act of independence when it launched in 1972, Ms. charted a new path in journalism—focusing news, opinion, analysis and culture around women’s aspirations and lives. Since its inception, Ms.’s message has been that women can change their lives, communities, nations and the world. It’s proven true. Five decades later, Ms. remains a trusted source for news, analysis and ideas.

The fireside chat will take place 12–1:30 p.m. PT (3:00–4:30 p.m. ET) and will explore the past and present of Ms. with guests Kathy Spillar, executive editor of Ms.; historian Beverly Guy-Sheftall; and historian Amy Farrell; moderated by Carmen Rios.

Tickets are free. Register here.

(For questions, or to request accommodations such as an ASL interpreter or closed captioning, please email history@womenshistory.org.)

Care about the future of feminism? Clearly, we do too. Let Ms. keep you up to date with our daily + weekly newsletters.

The team is a collection of Ms. print and digital editors and writers.
