Seventeen is an American magazine for teenagers. It was the first teen magazine to be established in the United States. The magazine's reader base is the female 12–19 year-old demographic. It began as a publication geared towards inspiring teen girls to become role models in work and citizenship. Soon after its debut, Seventeen took a more fashion and romance-oriented approach in presenting their material, while still maintaining their model of promoting self-confidence in young women. It was first published in September 1944 by Walter Annenberg's Triangle Publications.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
sev′n-tēn, adj. and n. seven and ten.—adj. and n. Sev′enteenth, the seventh after the tenth. [A.S. seofontíene—seofon, tíen, ten.]
