Abstract / Description

Russian Cosmopolitan was founded in 1994 as the first international women’s magazine published in Russia following the Soviet collapse. It’s a profitable entity unto itself – with a strong Western influence - and has managed to survive several owners, even when the Russian Anti-Monopoly Service rejected a proposal to acquire it from Hearst.While it's still (partly) about sex, times have changed. With more magazines on the market, not to mention a wealth of content for women on the Internet, it has half the circulation it had in the post-Soviet mid-late 1990s. And the content is starting to look decidedly different than it did just a few years ago.
