Womens day magazine is having a moment.
The women’s lifestyle publication has been the subject of intense criticism by feminists who believe that it has too many articles about men.
“The problem is that women want to have more access to these articles,” said Caitlin Gilliam, a sociology professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz.
She added that she believes the magazine has become a kind of “trend magazine” because of its focus on women and men’s issues.
Womens Day has not always been so popular.
In its heyday in the 1980s, the magazine featured “pioneers like Margaret Mead, Germaine Greer, Nancy Kress, and Gloria Steinem,” said Gilliam.
The magazine’s website recently moved to a new home in the Washington, D.C., area.

“The trend of feminism and women’s liberation are growing stronger and strengthening,” Gilliam said.
“They’re going to continue to get stronger and they’re going do more.”
