Magazine Monday's Review of Yocum Holdings: Bust

by Kim Stahler, Reference Librarian

Founded in 1993 by two Nickelodeon employees who wanted to create a "positive and outspoken women's magazine for their generation," Bust covers popular and indie culture. 

Topics include do-it-yourself crafting, fashion, history, finance, sexuality, politics, music, films, and books from a youthful (3rd wave) feminist perspective -- without the stereotypes more common in mainstream women's magazines. The featured subjects (Amy Schumer, Janelle Monae) are always asked about feminism. The ads make me want to run to NYC.
