This unique collection of extracts is taken from women's journals and magazines - both British and American - on the eve of the twentieth century. Arranged by subject, the collection focuses on what this pivotal moment represented for women and includes an introduction to women's journalism of the period.
The rapidly changing conditions then surrounding a woman's world are illustrated here by sections on:
* women and war
* colonial women
* the politics of emancipation
* and girlhood.
'This is a timely collection, very useful an introduction to research in periodical material and adding substance to the body of work being reclaimed from nineteenth and early twentieth-century journals.' - American Studies, Volume 35, 2001
