I was intrigued by the article ``Wrinkles May Tell But Don't Always Sell,'' April 21, about the folding of Lear's Magazine - especially by the observations about the tone and focus of current women's magazines preying on women's fears and insecurities.
While it is unfortunate that Lear's couldn't sustain its niche, I want other readers to know there is still at least one women's magazine that comprehensively addresses pertinent issues with intelligence and integrity.
MS. magazine offers a bimonthly publication that focuses on real women - wrinkles, fat, and all - with real issues: work, welfare, political reform, health care. Its advertising-free format allows for content-driven, not advertising-driven copy.
It should come as no surprise that MS. originated 21 years ago out of the feminist spirit of upholding all women in our dreams and struggles - and it continues to portray these processes with honesty and courage. Beth A. Coleman, Ellison Bay, Wis.
