In the wake of the publication of a leaked leaked list of the magazine’s 100 most-read women’s magazines, many women have expressed anger over the lack of diversity.
But for some women, a similar feeling of exclusion and fear has come with the lure of glamour.
“It’s a constant fear,” said Sarah Schulman, the founder and editor-in-chief of the New York-based magazine Vanity Fair.
“You never know what the future holds for us.”
In a world that is more accepting and more open than ever before, it is often hard to tell if there is anything new, and what is still new, said Schulmans co-founder Sarah Schulzman, who has been running Vanity Fair since 2012.
Vanity Fair’s editors and designers make up a large part of the decision-making process, and they often make a list of what the magazine will cover and what it won’t cover, she said.
But the decisions are made by a small group of editors, many of whom are also paid.
Some women, Schulmis co-founders said, are concerned that the magazine is too inclusive.
“We’re so far from our sisters and brothers, and we want to be able to tell their stories,” she said, adding that her own experience of being black and working in fashion was an example of a magazine not taking its story seriously enough.
For years, the magazine has been a pioneer of the online era.
It has a vibrant online community and publishes its most-recent issue each week, and its sister publications, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, have also expanded their offerings.
VanityFair.com, an online store dedicated to the magazine, has more than 500,000 followers and more than 100,000 members, including celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Gisele Bundchen.
The site has been popular with women who are interested in exploring their sexuality, the arts, and fashion, but the publication’s editor, Sarah Schuler, said that her colleagues also have diverse opinions on the issues.
For example, VanityFair covers the issues of abortion and marriage equality, but Schuls also covers topics such as gun rights and the future of the United States.
She said the publication was originally created for the young, hip, and beautiful young women who would be buying it, but it is also for the men who have seen the publication as an outlet to share their thoughts.
“The only way you can make that space available to a wider audience is by doing your research,” Schulma said.
“And then you have to figure out what is really valuable to you, what is not, and how you can share that with your community.”
In an effort to keep up with the changing landscape, Vanity Fair has been adding editors and staff members to the staff since 2013, with some hiring from outside the magazine.
It also has added a digital and social presence, with a dedicated Twitter account and a video blog, which allows the publication to reach a broader audience.
“What we’ve done is we’ve been investing a lot of time and money in our digital operation,” Schuler said.
For Schulms, the most important change in her time at Vanity Fair was the introduction of a digital platform, which she said has been an important part of making the publication more inclusive.
In addition to offering women the chance to discuss their sexual identities and sexual experiences, the digital platform has allowed women to create a platform for them to express themselves and share their ideas.
“Women really need to have that space to express their ideas, their experiences, their perspectives,” Schulz said.
She also said the digital experience has been beneficial to the publication.
The platform allows women to share personal and political opinions about issues such as abortion, marriage equality and gun rights, which have all been contentious issues.
“If we’re going to have conversations about these issues, it makes it easier to come together,” Schulu said.
In order to maintain its visibility, Vanityfair has worked to keep its digital presence, and Schulis said she believes it is important to stay ahead of trends in media.
“There is no question that women are more visible in this new digital age, and that is a good thing,” she added.
Schuli said that the digital operation has helped to keep the publication relevant to younger readers, who are increasingly turning to social media to find and connect with people.
“Young women are becoming more aware of these issues and more interested in participating,” she explained.
“They want to know how to engage with people on these issues.
That’s a huge shift.”
Schulmen said she hopes the publication can keep its commitment to diversity in its digital offerings.
“I think the important thing to keep in mind is that the content of the magazines is the content that we produce,” she suggested.
“But we have to stay true to our values, our mission, and our vision for this magazine.”
