Apparently Ms Magazine declined to accept an ad from the American Jewish Congress which featured three Israeli women who have reached the highest levels of success in their country.
The New York Sun reports that the advertisement, which was prepared by the American Jewish Congress, included pictures of three Israeli women who have reached the pinnacle of success in their fields: the president of the Israeli Supreme Court, Dorit Beinisch; Israel's foreign minister, Tzipi Livni, and speaker of the Knesset, Dalia Itzik. The text under the picture read: "This is Israel."
Though Jewish leaders -- correctly -- called this an anti-Israel act, Ms. defended itself by claiming to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that because two of the women photographed belong to the same political party, the advertisement showed favoritism.
Gimme a break.
This is the magazine that opened so many women's eyes to the subtle -- and not so subtle -- impact of sexism and discrimination against women.
For it to behave in this fashion is beneath contempt. I wish I subscribed to MS. so I could cancel my subscription.
