Yes it will have an effect. Everything has an effect. My opinion is that this is a better effect than the effect from the way some secular publications depict women.

The question is, will the magazines finally cave in to the pressure from groups mentioned in the article and start printing the pictures?


Do they represent the "silent majority", or are they just a vocal minority?

Many girls and women will tell you there are no women or girls in magazines because it's 'not tznius' because that's what they are taught. They don't really know what they mean even.
Should a woman consider it tznius to model clothing for publication to be viewed by men?

I would bet that the ones who are bothered enough by this to not buy the magazine aren't buying them either way.

If they are dressed and look modest ?

Honestly I have issues with ads as it is. The ones with women and the ones with men.  I haven't quite thought it all through so I can't give my final opinion.

Ads are by definition trying to attract the attention of the reader as are the graphics on an article.

That's what I"m trying to wrap my mind around.

Are there people that are that upset at the lack of pictures that they refuse to buy the magazines?

I would think that someone who does not want pictures and does one day see them in print would be more upset and end up not buying the magazine than somone who does want pictures and still doesn't see them.


But I don't know. That's what I want to discuss. If I were able to add another poll, it would read:

If you answered "Sure! Why not?" - would you boycott publications that don't?

If you answered "No way" - would you boycott publications that do?

I think many people who voted sure why not have not boycotted these magazines.



The same way my Chassidish Belzer bnei brak cousins and her friends wish they could drive, are married to men who see nothing wrong with them driving but no one's protesting in the streets.

Nope, never is the answer for 98% of them

What pressure? Do they feel pressure at all just because CM is hocking about it?

CM never bought or will buy any of the magazines so he's not nogei'a.

I'm talking about the ones mentioned in the article:

Tens of thousands of Orthodox women, who adhere to the publicationsí values outside of this deeply painful and humiliating policy, find the approach disturbing and puzzling. There are Facebook groups dedicated to the sole effort of changing these policies.

and

By the hundreds, frum women have contacted the publications to request a change in policy.

Is it indeed humiliating?

Reminds me of when my kids complain about someone bothering them. More often than not, it's the choice of the person being bothered as to whether they are bothered or not.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
