Description Women’s Magazine Archive 1 provides access to the complete archives of the foremost titles of this type, which serve as canonical records of evolving assumptions about gender roles and cultural mores. Topics covered in these collections include family life, home economics, health, careers, fashion, culture, and many more; this material serves multiple research areas, from gender studies, social history, and the arts, through to education, politics, and marketing/media history.
