Why does an editor with children not start the day at 9am and leave by 3:oo so homework and meals can be with their own child.... work can be finished from home at 7-9pm... that is what the "call to action" advocates for, but even at a magazine for women which acknowledges some choose to work and others must work, why are they not better working conditions at More?
This is the second issue in my subscription, and I wish it were my last. I subscribed thinking I would enjoy the articles, but was extremly offended by the use of the "f" word in the Julia Louis-Dreyfus article. I would think if your magazine is targeted for women, that you wouldn't have to use that kind of language. Hopefully the May issue will be more sensored. If not, please refund my $15.00.
I enjoy MORE so much.
But, I don't see articles on dress and makeup for 60+ ladies. I am 68 and still working. Women in my age bracket do not feel old and very much yearn for clothes and makeup tips. We have money to spend!
Thanks for your consideration of this topic.
I was disheartened by the captioned article as the photos seemed to emphasize Julia's "girls" and not her true personality It seemed more like a People Magazine article - long on sensationalism but short on substance which is why I am a bit disillusioned on the path" More" seems to be taking in their feature articles recently.
I had already admired "Elaine" but after reading the article, I found myself disappointed by Julia. As a Language Arts teacher, I have always said to my 7th grade students that "using profanity is a sign of an ignorant mind" and I am unaware of where I read or heard this - but it has stuck with me for many years. Why must people use profanity to communicate at all?
Julia or the writers of her show can't come up with better nouns, adjectives or verbs? Really? Seinfeld did, which is a tribute to their writers.
I am hoping for improvement as I feel it is a disservice to women everywhere that we need to lower ourselves to use profanity to get a point across.
You can and should do better.

I have been a subscriber to More since the first issue in 1998. I have looked forward to receiving it every month for many years. I was 47 when More came on the scene and I felt like I saw myself in its pages more than in any other publication. In the last couple years you have abandoned women my age and reached down to capture a young market. I open the magazine now and, more often than not, I am disappointed. I thought you would grow with me but you seem to have bought into the youth market instead. Would it have been so bad to splash on the front cover of the April issue, “THIS IS WHAT 40, 50 60 LOOKS LIKE”? I am beautiful and stylish, too. I am sad; I think I won’t be renewing my subscription when it runs out.
I am disappointed to find that More seems to be leaning toward a younger market. Two of the more recent issues have addressed fashion and beauty for women in their 30s, 40s and 50s. In my opinion these articles should have been focused on readers in their 40s, 50s and 60s. Many women are interested in fashion, beauty and health well into their 70s, but those of us in our 60's should certainly be considered in a magazine ostensibly directed originally at women over 40.
Much of the writing is excellent, but there are some very interesting and successful women, both retired and not, who might be featured. Too often the women featured, while deserving, are well under 50. Please get back to giving your senior and pre-senior subscribers MORE.
More Magazine, why have you deserted your loyal readers?
I have noticed in all recent magazines that you are catering to a "younger" readership. Now, you write articles aimed at women from the ages of maybe 30-50 yrs old.
