I just got my newest issue of Cosmopolitan through in the post today, I’ve been waiting for it! It’s by far the best magazine for women out there, and the handy travel-sized version never leaves my handbag.
Cosmo celebrates its 40th birthday this year. 40 years of brilliant reading for ‘fun, fearless females’. Cosmo has never failed to bring us the latest fashions, beauty tips, sex facts and hard hitting stories on issues that are affecting women all over the world.
Cosmopolitan lets you indulge in all those cringey stories that you hope never happen to you, and it gives you the answers to all those questions you never wanted to ask your mum. It keeps you up to date with the hottest new clothes, and informs you of all the latest beauty products that you want in your make-up bag. Not only that, but there’s loads on sex and never a shortage of gorgeous men to look at.
I wouldn’t call myself a feminist – I’m not all up for kicking and screaming about equal rights – but by reading Cosmo, it makes me feel like I’m part of a huge community. Not only in the magazine, but through the website too, a space is provided for women to talk about anything from the best new mascara to domestic violence. It provides a voice for women that you just can’t help but relate to yourself. Not only this, but Cosmo has campaigned on several pressing issues that women face, such as rape and domestic violence.
So thank you, Cosmopolitan for 40 years of enjoyable reading and strong support for women everywhere. I can’t remember the last time where I didn’t have an issue on my desk, and I can’t imagine a future without it.
