Amina The Women's Magazine
Amina is a monthly French-language women's magazine targeting black women in Africa, Europe, the Caribbean and North America. It was founded in 1972 and has its headquarters in Paris.
In 1970, Michel de Breteuil followed the example of the South African magazine Tambour and founded the magazine of several women in different African countries, before uniting all in a store named Amina in April 1972. Simon Kiba from Senegal was the co-founder of the magazine. For the first three years, its headquarters were in Senegal, before being moved to Paris in 1975. Initially aimed at black women in Africa, it widened its readership to black women in the West Indies, in Europe and in North America over the years. The first edition contained a thirty-two page Fotonovela in black and white, with only the first and last page being in color. Reporting on social issues and fashion have been added gradually since. Amina achieved the highest circulation of French-language magazines for black women with several ten thousand copies per month.
