Newsweek's most iconic covers
Newsweek's first issue, dated Feb. 17. 1933. For eight decades, the weekly magazine has been a staple on newsstands. But in 2013, Newsweek's print version is going away. It will, however, continue to live on the web. Here's a look back at some of the magazine's most memorable covers.
A June 13, 1966 cover posed what was clearly considered a newsworthy question, “What role for the educated woman?” Sophomore Jamie Rosenthal of Radcliffe was quoted: “I think I’m bright, but I’m more delighted when I can be outbrighted than be brighter than someone else -- particularly if it’s a man.”
Newsweek explores the women's movement gone mainstream in this March 23, 1970 issue. From the editor’s note: “A new specter is haunting America—the specter of militant feminism. Convinced they have little to lose but their domestic chains, growing numbers of women are challenging the basic assumptions of what they consider a male-dominated society. They demand equal rights in every area from wages through child-rearing to sexual expression."
