About Us

YEEWONG is Bhutan’s first and only women’s magazine. It celebrates every aspect of womanhood that makes women special and unique with a special focus on Bhutanese women.

The vision of the magazine is “Bringing Her Forward”. Yeewong is a Dzongkha word which means something that appeals to the heart. We at YEE like to believe that this is exactly what the magazine stands for: something that appeals to the heart of our readers.
