It's always the ones that tread carefully that survive.

Illustrations are always a good alternative.

I wonder if any of the magazines don't even allow illustrations of females.

And since it's Friday, I'll ask the inevitable question, does she it make a difference how the illustrated character identifies?

There is a beautiful new children’s e- magazine (for now) called Tmunah that does show appropriate pictures of girls and women.  They are asking for a $3 donation per issue but you can give whatever you want (so maybe just donate them a few bucks even if you don’t want the PDF).  :)

I just downloaded and printed the Adar issue for my daughter. It’s 36 pages with nice stuff in it (may daughter has already started some of the craft projects for Purim) and they have a beautifully respectful picture on the cover of Rebbetzin Jungreis, with an accompanying article. I thought it was a nice touch to have such a towering Torah teacher as a role model and also show not only “fringe” people are for including appropriate pictures of women.
