Women's Magazine Archive

This database provides access to the complete archives of six 19th and 20th-century women's magazines. In combination, the publications 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. Article-level indexing, with document feature flags, enables searching and navigation. Content is still being added. The titles and their projected dates of coverage are: Better Homes & Gardens (1922 to 2005) Chatelaine (1928 to 2005) Good Housekeeping (1885 to 2005) Ladies’ Home Journal (1883 to 2005) Parents (1926 to 2005) Redbook (1903 to 2005).
