Vanity Fair's Women on Women
by Radhika Jones and David Friend


Overview - Looking back at the last 35 years of Vanity Fair feature pieces on women, by women, with an introduction by new editor, Radhika Jones

Gail Sheehy on Hillary Clinton. Ingrid Sischy on Nicole Kidman. Jacqueline Woodson on Lena Waithe. Leslie Bennetts on Michelle Obama. And two Maureens (Orth and Dowd) on two Tinas (Turner...and Fey). Vanity Fair's Women on Women features 30 of the best profiles, essays, and columns written by women contributors to the magazine over the past 35 years.

From the viewpoint of the female gaze come penetrating profiles on everyone from Gloria Steinem to Princess Diana to Rihanna to essays on workplace sexual harassment (by Bethany McLean) to and a post-#MeToo reassessment of the Clinton Scandal (by Monica Lewinsky). These pieces tell a singular story of female icons and identity over the last four decades--and of the magazine as it has evolved under the editorial direction of Tina Brown, Graydon Carter, and Radhika Jones, who has written a compelling introduction.

In her inaugural editor's letter, Jones references Brown's classic formula: It's our mission at Vanity Fair to take the pulse of the culture--high and low. Under Jones, Vanity Fair continues the publication's proud tradition of highlighting women's voices--and all the many ways they shape our culture.
