5. A Magazine for the “Career Girl” via The New Yorker
Judith Daniels who was a trailblazer for women in the publishing world, dies at 74. Daniels served in senior editing positions at The Village Voice, New York magazine, Time Inc. and Conde Naste, she also founded the only magazine for “career girls” called Savvy: The Magazine for the Executive Woman.
Judith Daniels was leaning in when Sheryl Sandberg was ten years old—which only goes to show that equity in the workplace hasn’t come such a long way, after all. “When men read about successful women, they think they see the Western civilization crumbling,” Judy told a newspaper reporter in 1977, describing her vision for Savvy. “Men tend to overreact to female ambition. To them, ambition is still a dirty word.” Still, Judy emphasized that Savvy was not meant to be anti-male. Savvy would not be “a separatist magazine for militants.”
