Diversity of Magazine Cover Girls Improves, but not Enough
Posted by Natali Rivers on Aug 9, 2013
The Huffington Post recently conducted a study to determine the diversity of magazine cover girls. The study excluded magazines that cater to a specific ethnic population and focused on 16 “mainstream” publications. Tallying from September 2012 to September 2013, HuffPo found that only 18 percent of the covers featured women of color. Insert shocked face here. Although these stats were sadly unsurprising, I did find one aspect encouraging. The magazine that was considered most diverse, with half of their covers featuring women of color, was Teen Vogue.
