ELLE (Canada) - - Elle Letters -

Your eye-open­ing, heartwrench­ing ar­ti­cle on the plight of North Korean women [ELLE World, April 2014] re­minded me how priv­i­leged many of us are. In sharp con­trast to other ar­ti­cles in the same is­sue, which pre­sented topics con­cern­ing women to­day (wash­ing your face the right way, retro ro­mance), this high­lighted how women in less-de­vel­oped coun­tries are con­fronted with more ex­is­ten­tial prob­lems, like star­va­tion and forced mar­riages. I’m im­pressed that ELLE Canada al­ways man­ages to com­bine cur­rent world po­lit­i­cal, eco­nomic and eco­log­i­cal is­sues with fash­ion, beauty, style, re­la­tion­ships and travel. Like the mod­ern woman, you have many facets. Keep on chal­leng­ing us. EVAN­GE­LINE DE MACEDO, SWITZER­LAND
