Brigitte is a biweekly women's magazine in Germany[1] which has been in circulation since 1886.

History and profile

The magazine was first published in 1886 under the name Das Blatt der Hausfrau (German: Housewife’s Journal).[2][3] Its target audience was the middle-class bourgeois housewife and the magazine often covered articles about child-rearing and foods.[2] During World War II it stopped publication.[2]

The magazine was relaunched in 1949 and was renamed as Brigitte in 1954.[2][4] Brigitte merged with another women's magazine Constanze in 1969.[4]

Brigitte is published every two weeks by Gruner + Jahr.[1] Its headquarters is in Hamburg.[5] The magazine launched its website in April 1997.[6] The target audience of the magazine is both housewives and working women.[7]

Andreas Lebert and Brigitte Huber served as co-editors of Brigitte.[8] Lebert, after serving in the post from 2002 to 2012, left the magazine to become editor-in-chief of Zeit Wissen magazine.[9]

In 2010 the magazine began to employ women who were not professional models.[10]
