The Melpomene Institute was founded in 1982 and is dedicated to helping women and girls achieve adequate nutrition, physical activity, rest and personal safety by removing barriers at the policy level and by introducing practices at the community level. Women these days are so much more active than in the past and they want a way to express themselves physically and with a healthy attitude. There are many magazine for men Melpomene is a journal directed towards women. From 1982 to 2002 the journal published articles related to several different topics including; Body Image & Physical Activity of Adolescent Girls with Scoliosis, Role of Physical Activity in the Recovery from and Breast Cancer, Physical Activity and Weight in the Menopausal Years and Effect of Exercise Variables on Osteoporosis Study Participants. The journal has information that pertains to women of all ages. It includes journals to even keep your babies at a healthy stage of life as well. I felt that this was an important journal because it isnt just related to age group of women. I felt that this can be a very informative journal for every woman.
