Reductress Relaunch


Funny Women PSA: Reductress, “the first and only satirical women’s magazine,” has relaunched with a new female-friendly look and new feminized content.

Ambitious co-founders Beth Newell and Sarah Pappalardo saw the need to augment the site’s objectives. “We realized that Reductress had the potential to be more than just a blog,” Pappalardo says. “That’s why we’ll be expanding our written content, and will be exploring opportunities for original video content, as well as woman-inspired comedy events around New York.”
