Synopsis

A movement is under way among young women, and it's not about hair, make-up, or staying thin. It is about girls and young women writing and producing their own media, in their own voices, on topics that are important to them. Sherry Handel launched Blue Jean magazine with little more than a vision - to provide teen girls with an alternative to the glamour and beauty magazines. Young women themselves - editors, writers, illustrators, photographers, and correspondents created it - making blue jean the only magazine written and produced by young women from around the world. USA Today dubbed Blue Jean; The Thinking Girl's Magazine. You will be captivated by this first collection of best of Blue Jean; stories and articles, enjoyed during the magazine's heroic two and a half year run by readers in 24 countries. Blue Jean: What Young Women are Thinking, Saying, and Doing holds fresh and uplifting insights on topics from body image and confidence, ethnicity and racism, to the pitfalls and triumphs of everyday living. Learn about the entrepreneurial vision of Blue Jean's founder, Sherry Handel and the courageous launch of her dream.
