The relation between reading a girls magazine, Yes, and the construction of gender identity is explored, drawing on qualitative interview data. By using a symbolic-interactional perspective on identity, the often-assumed relation between media and identity formation is substantiated. The magazine Yes is in several ways a symbolic significant other, mediating experiences and stories from other girls with whom readers can identify in a positive, but sometimes negative, way. The mechanism of role taking makes clear that, although interaction with a magazine is nonreciprocal, the process of (self) reflexivity is identical to live interaction. In fact, the girl's culture in which readers participate and reading Yes reinforce each other's contribution to identity construction.
