A lot of titles are still following the same formula that the women's magazine should be strictly for women about issues that concern women only - as if such things exist. This is divisive. But if change is to come about, dialogue between everyone is necessary.

Have you ever been browsing in the newsagent and decided to compare the magazines aimed at women to the magazines aimed at men? Well, the kind folk...

It was always going to draw a few funny looks - sitting on a crowded train reading an article titled "10 steps to a better orgasm". I mean, I'm a guy - what on earth was I doing reading this? I can only assume my fellow passengers concluded I was bored and had grabbed a discarded magazine or was conducting some sort of research for the bedroom.

It is not only the magazines which cost a small fortune that catch my eye, it's the freebies that are distributed at underground stations for your journey home: Stylist and Shortlist. My publication passion stems from my obsession with culture and need for current affairs across all realms.

On Behalf of One in Five Women of a Certain Age, I'm Throwing Down a Gauntlet to the Press

not many childless women are yet willing to be spotlighted in the press, but that's partly because the press don't treat them as newsworthy, feature-worthy, in the first place. If they don't feel valued, it's a vicious circle. And yes, some of the key messages are hard to hear.

In Defence of Women's Magazines - Five Reasons They Don't Deserve the Current Backlash

Women's magazines are bad. They make women feel rubbish. Reading them is stupid. But am I the only one who doesn't get this? My experience of 18 years' women's mag fandom has been brilliant. They've influenced me in a positive way and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone on this point.

Women's Magazines: Reinforcing the Patriarchy Using Women to Police Women

I wasn't at all shocked by OK Magazine's newest cover story: "Kate's Post-Baby Weight Loss Regime". Body-shaming a woman less than 48 hours after they gave birth is entirely keeping within the normative behaviour of women's magazines. OK Magazine might have been the first of the women's magazines to publish diet tips for the Duchess of Cambridge but they won't be the last.

I'm all for the nude form but a picture of a naked, waif-like Karlie Kloss advertising a weight loss photo shoot is beyond the pale. What kind of message does this send to normal women?

All the advice is focused on the physical act of having a good bonk, not one mention of emotional connection. I believe girls mags are missing a huge trick here.

I am often entertained by the headlines of the articles in these magazines, promising perfect hair, weight loss miracles and the answers to life's most fundamentally important questions. This cartoon is the first of a series celebrating these headlines.
