Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM.
I think you are on to something,
which is "the retreat of magazine
articles geared toward the feminist
woman"-- however, I don't think
this retreat has changed dramatically
since the mid-1980s, perhaps
with the exception of Glamour's
latest turn away from feminism/politics.
The exception to this rule,
of course, is Ms.
Magazine, which has been
provided an outlet for feminist
women since its creation in
1972. To learn more about how
magazines have always mistreated
feminism, you can look to a
couple of places:
1.) Susan Douglas' book-- Where the Girls Are: Growing Up Female with the Mass Media.
2.) Laura Flander's book-- Real Majority, Media Minority: The cost of sidelining women in reporting.
3.) For more on Ms.--see
Mary Thom's Book--Inside Ms.: 25 Years of the Magazine and the Feminist Movmement and Amy
Farrell's--Yours In Sisterhood: Ms. Magazine and the Promise of Popular Feminism .
4.) Also, Susan Faludi's Backlash devotes lots of attention to this.
Those should be enough sources
to get you started.
