Women are in the process of effecting radical social change; they are doing this boldly, confidently and in solidarity. We are also witnessing the dawning of a new era for women, as even Li Edelkoort, one of the most important trend forecasters of our time, recently affirmed. We would therefore like to dedicate this issue to all of the women who are helping to usher in this new era. “For women who choose to lead” – this is the credo of the new She’s Mercedes magazine. After a comprehensive overhaul, we are proudly presenting the magazine in its new look: the larger format and more opulent and elegant layouts serve to highlight the sophistication of our interview partners and illustrate their thoughts and words.
