This database provides searchable access to the complete archives of leading women's interest magazines, dating from the 19th century through to the 21st. Comprised of 2 collections (Archive 1 and Archive 2), Women’s Magazine Archive provides access to publications which cover topics such as 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. The magazines are all scanned from cover to cover in high-resolution color and include non-article items, such as advertisements.
