Midge Turk Richardson, Former Nun Who Brought Frank Discussions to Seventeen, 82
"At Seventeen, which she edited from 1975 until her retirement in 1993, Mrs. Richardson was known for introducing frank discussions of delicate subjects -- including sex, anorexia and suicide -- from which the magazine, aimed at teenage girls and long considered a bastion of wholesomeness, had traditionally shied away."
