The first issue of Hip Mama was published in December, 1993, in Oakland, California, by the founding editor Ariel Gore as a forum for single, urban and feminist mothers. Hip Mama has been called “fun and irreverent” by USA Today, ”delightful” by Glamour, and “cutting-edge” by the Chicago Tribune. The magazine grew up alongside Gore’s daughter, covering subjects from weaning to home schooling with humor and political edge. Ariel’s pregnancy and parenting books, The Hip Mama Survival Guide (Hyperion, 1998), The Mother Trip (Seal Press, 2000), and Whatever, Mom (Seal Press, 2004), have been called “Terrific and important” (San Francisco Chronicle), and “revolutionary” (The Seattle Times). Gore edited Hip Mama for 15 years. After a 5-year hiatus, she’s back at the helm, relaunching to magazine with a 20th anniversary issue in 2014.
