Within larger news organizations, the lifestyle section (referred to more blatantly in the past as the women’s pages
) is typically where you’ll find articles about food, fashion, beauty, health and wellness, personal finance, parenting, relationships, as well as features about women’s rights issues and stories from marginalized voices. Coverage of systemic racism, violence against women, and LGBTQ+ rights finds a home in today’s life sections. Women’s media outlets, such as Refinery29 and Chatelaine
(where I worked for four years), are generally referred to as lifestyle publications, though our work also often includes news, politics, sports, and entertainment — not that we get much credit for it.
