What Does Ms. Magazine Mean to You?

Throughout the decades, Ms. readers have provided ideas and inspiration that shaped the magazine. So in advance of our 50th anniversary later this fall, we’re once again asking for you to share your stories about what Ms. means to you. Submit your story here to see it published online—we’ll be selecting a number to be featured in our upcoming special 50th anniversary collector’s issue of the magazine (on newsstands Dec. 27).

As we approach our 50th anniversary, we want to know: What’s your Ms. story? Tell us:

  • How and when did you discover Ms.?
  • Why do you read Ms.?
  • What impact has Ms. had on your life?

Ms. members are some of the most loyal readers in the magazine industry—and this milestone anniversary is a testament to all of you and your commitment to feminist journalism. Whether you’ve been reading Ms. since the 70’s, or you’ve joined us more recently in the wake of the overturn of Roe v. Wade, we’re so glad you’re a part of our community.

Here’s to the next 50!

U.S. democracy is at a dangerous inflection point—from the demise of abortion rights, to a lack of pay equity and parental leave, to skyrocketing maternal mortality, and attacks on trans health. Left unchecked, these crises will lead to wider gaps in political participation and representation. For 50 years, Ms. has been forging feminist journalism—reporting, rebelling and truth-telling from the front-lines, championing the Equal Rights Amendment, and centering the stories of those most impacted. With all that’s at stake for equality, we are redoubling our commitment for the next 50 years. In turn, we need your help, Support Ms. today with a donation—any amount that is meaningful to you. For as little as $5 each month, you’ll receive the print magazine along with our e-newsletters, action alerts, and invitations to Ms. Studios events and podcasts. We are grateful for your loyalty and ferocity.
