Tina Brown’s Newsweek covers have featured women 6 of 14 weeks

Of the 14 issues of Newsweek she’s edited since taking over the magazine, Tina Brown has featured women as solo cover images in nearly half of them (see cover images below). In the 14 issues prior to Brown’s tenure, only one cover featured a woman, Michelle Rhee.

Of the eight covers that did not feature women alone, one was of the royal couple, three were weather-, earthquake- or disaster-related, one was about Mitt Romney, one was about the “mancession” and one was about the death of Osama bin Laden.

    Now, let’s see. If Newsweek had featured men on the covers, would this tidbit of news have been noteworthy?
