Femina 18 THINK INDIA, THINK TIMES September 2006 EDITORIAL HIGHLIGHTS Femina caputures the essence of the contemporary Indian woman, her feelings and desires; her style; her sensuality; her very essence. Femina reflects the sophisticated internationalistic outlook of the elite urban woman in India today. Femina is synonymous with Indian beauty and fashion. Femina alone has put the Indian woman firmly in the international beauty spotlight. But Femina has to be more than purely a beauty and fashion magazine to satisfy her demands. So it offers a total package, comprising beauty fashion, gourmet food, decor, childcare. Its a magazine that mirrors the multi faceted life of the modern Indian woman. As beauty products, both Indian and foreign have become more widely available in India, beauty has become an increasingly important topic for our readers. As such it is a vital component of Feminas editorial package. As changing lifestyles expose more and more Indian women to the same stresses as their western counterparts. Indian women are becoming more aware that facial and body care must be essential parts of their daily regime. It is this editorial matrix that has made Femina the leading womans magazine in India today.
Femina 19 THINK INDIA, THINK TIMES September 2006 THE TARGET READER Although we justifiably call Femina the market leader, for in comparison with other womens magazines it has a high circulation, we are referring to it in the context of a small niche market. It must be remembered that in India, literacy offers fragmentation of a market like no other parameter. The very fact that you can read makes you elitist and privileged. Further, English is the language of the privileged upper class relegating local languages to a lower position in society. Therefore, English readers are at the pinnacle of the Indian consumer spectrum. In other words the sophisticated affluent elite with a class all of its own. This Indian woman may be outward looking and internationalist. But she is not western. She is Indian and very, very proud of it. Femina has maintained that delicate balance of Indianness and western aspiration which is just where the top stratum of Indian womanhood is at and which the international magazines in Indian women cannot be judged by western standards.
