From its headquarters in Niwot, Colorado, Atlantic Publishers Group (APG) offers magazines to a wide variety of subscribers across the country. Besides its popular titles like Forbes, Newsweek, and Harper’s Bazaar, Atlantic Publishers Group also distributes special-interest titles like Foreign Policy.

The March/April 2017 issue of Foreign Policy puts women across the world on center stage. The issue begins by shedding light on a unique group of women with members on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, all of whom support nationalistic movements in their respective countries. The issue then puts a spotlight on African women, highlighting how the Trump administration’s decision to cut funding for initiatives linked to abortion is compromising the health of women across the continent before focusing on the story of one woman in a small Kenyan town who is helping women who have experienced sexual violence.

The March/April 2017 issue also looks at the role of women in developing tomorrow’s technology; the effect of women’s demonstrations in shaping modern-day policies; and how one woman from history, Queen Victoria, exercised her power publicly. Definitely an interesting read for anyone curious to know how women are making their mark in the modern world.

Ever since the release of its first issue in 1888, National Geographic magazine has provided readers with insight into some of the world’s least known cultures and diverse natural environments. The magazine is also known for capturing the attention of individual’s with a variety of visually arresting covers. National Geographic featured a plain brown cover on its inaugural issue, while colored photos did not appear on the front of each issue until 1959.

Many National Geographic covers feature animals, though they are generally more exotic than companion animals, like dogs. That said, six dogs have taken over the magazine’s cover, with the March 2008 issue selling more than any other. The issue carried a handsome picture of Betsy, a border collie, to go along with an article entitled Animal Minds. The widely read article analyzed the cognitive abilities of earth’s most intelligent animals including dogs, dolphins, and orangutans.

Humans from all over the globe are an equally big focus of the National Geographic team. Perhaps no human face has had as big an impact as that of the 12 year old Afghan refugee photographed by Steve McCurry, which made its way onto the magazine’s June 1985 cover. The girl’s beautiful yet haunting green eyes perfectly accompanied a harrowing story about the war torn nation. Other popular covers include the great redwoods pictured on the October 2009 issue for The Tallest Trees article and the iconic image of Koko the gorilla operating a camera, used for the October 1978 cover story, Conversations with a Gorilla.
