Girls are beautiful as themselves!

We Are All Beautiful

What a cover! It’s brimming with girls who are beautiful being themselves. Each of them is different in how she experiences and shares her beauty to the world. That’s our goal with the annual Beautiful Girls issue–to help girls recognize and appreciate their unique beauty and the unique beauty of everyone. This is our 19th year of Beautiful Girls issues! It’s an issue we often sell out of. So if you want extra single paper copies to share with more girls order them now at this link . If we do sell out of paper copies you can still order the digital copy – we never run out of them :).

Girls Are Beautiful As Themselves

You may wonder why we even bring up beauty at all with our members. We do it to give them and you an inspiring toolkit of ways to resist the ever-present oppression of popular beauty culture. They see peers and adults altering their appearance, sometimes in dangerous ways like restricting food, to “perfect themselves” by fitting the current cultural definition of beautiful. We make this magazine issue every year to give them a refuge from, and alternatives to, all that pressure. They need that refuge to maintain their sense of themselves as beautiful without alteration or perfectionism. This issue provides many opportunities for our readers, parents and other adult allies to strengthen their resistance with articles including:

  • Girls Beautiful As Themselves
  • Moooood Swings
  • Your Top Job?
  • DIY Pizzapalooza
  • Fairy Story Contest
  • Draw! Color! Write! Debate!
  • I HATE How I Look
  • Craft Catbands
  • Persuading Game
  • Fiction: Pixies Aren’t Real
  • The Last Word: Ida B. Wells

  1. We’ve relocated to another state. How can we update our subscription information?

    1. Hi Angel – Go to newmoongirls.com/contact and send us: 1. the name the magazine is mailed to, 2. the old postal address including zip, 3. the new postal address including zip, 4. the date the new address is effective. The July-Aug issue mailed a couple weeks ago so the change you make now will take effect for the Sept-Oct issue.

  2. Is it possible to buy a single issue of New Moon? I just ordered a subscription for my niece, but since her first issue isn’t scheduled to arrive until Feb or March of next year, I’m thinking I might like to send her one issue now.

  3. Hi Jane – thank you for gifting your niece – we love aunts – they are so special! You can definitely buy a single issue – just go here: https://simplecirc.com/shop/new-moon-girls You can choose from both recent and classic issues. The magazine’s content is timeless because our mission is bringing girls’ voices to each other and that never goes out-of-date, unlike breaking news.
