New “Verily” Magazine Promises to be Trendy While Affirming Women
The Catholic News Agency had an interview with co-founder and editor-in-chief of new Verily magazine, Kara Eschbach.
The publication is geared toward young professional women, likely single or newly married, and tries to offer a positive and “affirming” message that they will enjoy reading, Eschbach said.
She explained that after discussing various names, the editors eventually settled on “Verily,” which means “truly” or “honestly” and reflects what they wanted to portray with the magazine, something that “really resonates with women.”
Eschbach is dissatisfied with the way that women are often “talked to and about” by media and culture as being either “silly and frivolous” or focused solely on getting ahead in their career.
“Verily” offers an alternative, she said, seeking to be trendy while at the same time respecting women and connecting with them.
The goal is to show women who are healthy and beautiful, not only physically but also “in the way we live our lives,” she explained.
I flipped through the online teaser edition which can be found here.
At first glance, I am impressed by the topics as well as the fashion photos. I didn’t see any women in mini skirts that barely cover the posterior. The makeup tips appear to be natural and more realistic. Let’s face it, most of us do not go out to work with vamp makeup. The woman on the cover (picture included in this post), is wearing a nice, modest dress or top.
Seems like there is hope yet.
Cheers to this nice effort and I’m looking forward to seeing the future articles.
