The difference between your typical female and male magazine issue are noticeable and stereotypical. A magazine targeting males usually talk about sports, fitness, or business. A female targeting magazine usually talks about fashion, cooking, or home improvements.
I don’t believe that these magazine topics represent male or female interest in every case. Their are woman making huge strides in business and men that enjoy cooking. I do feel that magazines are getting more diverse at a very snail pace.
The changes seen in magazines are due to the wants and needs changing with time. Items that were not accessible to the average person 30 years ago are now in our pockets which brings a broader spectrum of information for magazines to cover and play with.
