How To Pitch: Women's Health

Background: As part of Rodale's family of leading healthy-lifestyle publications, Women's Health is all about action. Launched in 2005 to give readers the tools, information and resources to make instant changes to live their best, most fit lives, the magazine shot up to claim one of the top spots in women's health and fitness media -- and stayed there. Being healthy isn't all about core strengthening and raw-veggie diets. It encompasses traditional, mental, emotional and financial health, and Women's Health masterfully covers those topics to give readers what they need to be holistically well and inspired.

Competitors like Self, Shape and Health remain relevant, but Women's Health differentiates itself by digging deeper into issues that other wellness-focused magazines may not. Every month, at least one special report explores a current topic of interest -- such as domestic violence, heart health and drug developments. And with nearly two dozen international editions serving more than 15 million newsstand purchasers, subscribers and pass-along readers, the Women's Health brand is among the fastest-growing international women's magazines in the world. Freelancers who want to get in on the growing conversation, which crosses cultures, geographies and communities, are welcome to bring their ideas to the table.
