A Magazine With Moxie

November 08, 1998|BOOTH MOORE

Looking for something more out of a women's magazine than fashion, sex and beauty? Check out Moxie, a new publication out of Berkeley designed for college grads.

Instead of featuring airbrushed female facsimiles, Moxie tells stories of real women. The premiere issue features profiles of a pastry chef, a Hollywood scriptwriter and a stripper.

Emily Hancock got the idea for the mag when she did research on women's self-esteem at Barnard, Sarah Lawrence, Vassar, Bard, Wellesley and Mills colleges. That research was published in "The Girl Within," (Dutton, Ballantine). Look for Moxie's fall issue on love at Virgin Megastores and Barnes & Noble, or on the Internet at http://www.moxiemag.com.
