I enjoy your magazine a lot, having come to a point where I feel a lot of other women's magazines cater to women under the age of 30 (I am 39), and I just can't relate anymore.
That being said, I do have a couple of issues with More. The first is the feature "This is what (insert age) looks like." Very nice, but I would love to see more women who are 50+ or 60+ or older who are active, running businesses, and doing awesome things in general. For those of us who haven't quite hit middle age, that would be so inspiring.
The other complaint I have concerns all the "anti-aging" features every month, which I feel is just an advertising showcase for really expensive products. There is nothing we can do to actually stop aging, but we can age healthfully and gracefully. I realize a lot of your readers are looking for skin and hair care products that are age-appropriate and will improve their appearance (myself included), but it would be really nice to feature them in a more positive light.
It is bad enough that our culture treats aging, and especially older women, in such a negative way and sends the message that we must turn back the clock at all costs. Does a magazine that targets older women have to send the same message?
There is more to women than the 30's, 40's, and 50's.... you seem
to be forgetting the 60's.... even the 70's
I am one of those 60's..... and have many beautiful (inside and out)
friends in their 60's and 70's....some are still working, some are enjoying
retirement after working their whole lives, some are enjoying being
grandma's.... some are doing incredible volunteer work....
you should come to Fredericksburg, Texas.....there is way more
here than vineyards...
"whats the good of living disconnected from the heart"
After reading your latest publication with Melissa McCarthy as your focus, I must comment on my displeasure of your choice.
I am guessing that, after reading your article, she is a nice person. However, I take offense that what you seem to be promoting is that it is okay in this society to be obese. In a country where 3 out of 4 people are obese, and as a result, will probably be imposing a negative impact. Your magazine has always focussed on living life to the fullest; eating properly, exercising, being the best person you can be.
I now feel very disappointed and am not looking forward to my next magazine. I have shared this opinion with family and friends, and I must report that it is one shared by the majority.
Please reconsider how you promote your attitudes and ideas of what we women in the MORE "world" should be thinking about as positive examples.
Thank you for any consideration you might have of my opinion.
