We were excited to see Forbes magazine's list of the 100 best websites for women last week. Whether in fitness, food, fashion, business, or entertainment, there's nothing we at SHAPE like more than seeing other savvy, fierce women disrupting the status quo, making you think, or getting things done. And to be sure, there were dozens of fantastic choices on the list—The 30-Nothings, Babble, BlogHer, The Bump, and 85 Broad are just a few examples of how Forbes got it right, and you certainly should check out the rest of the list if you have a spare moment.
But (you knew there was a "but" coming!), we couldn't help feeling a little disappointed when we noticed that no health and fitness sites made the cut. The brand decided that it didn't feel comfortable acting as an authority on women's bodies, which we respect—and totally get! We just couldn't let it go completely, so we put together our own list of the best websites for women, with a focus on health and fitness. Most are organized by women for women, though a few are spearheaded by men, and all provide accurate, entertaining, and informative takes on the latest in today's health and fitness news.
