Breaking a 124-year old record, Vogue has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president of the United States for the first time. Though editors in the past have voiced their personal opinion, the magazine does not have any history of political endorsements.
"Editors in chief have made their opinions known from time to time, but the magazine has never spoken in an election with a single voice," the piece read.
"Given the profound stakes of this [election], and the history that stands to be made, we feel that should change," it continued.
The magazine, which has covered Clinton's career, pointed out that she was best suited amongst other candidates.
"We understand that Clinton has not always been a perfect candidate, yet her fierce intelligence and considerable experience are reflected in policies and positions that are clear, sound, and hopeful," the endorsement continued.
She has been profiled by the magazine six times.
The article highlighted Clinton's support for immigration reform, racial justice, LGBTQ rights and women's rights as reasons which determined the endorsement.
"Women won the vote in 1920. It has taken nearly a century to bring us to the brink of a woman leading our country for the first time. Let's put this election behind us and become the America we want to be: optimistic, forward-looking, and modern," the piece said.
Last month, The New York Times endorsed Clinton for the White House. The newspaper also ran an editorial which focused on why Trump should not be the president.
