Forget school, the end of summer marks the start of the fashion year. While women’s magazines packed this year’s September issues with the usual previews of designers’ fall collections, many included previews of the political variety. Vogue profiled U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Glamour highlighted women behind the scenes of the 2016 campaigns. Vanity Fair reported on Chelsea Clinton. What’s behind the increase in politics coverage? History. Today we examine how women’s magazines first introduced politics to their readers and how current editors do that today.
