On trial: Women’s Magazine Archive

We are pleased to bring you trial access to the Women’s Magazine Archive.

The archive provides access to three collections of consumer magazines aimed at a female readership, recognized as primary sources through which to interpret multiple aspects of 19th and 20th-century history and culture.

Topics covered 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.

Titles include:

  • Better Homes & Gardens (1922 to 2005)
  • Cosmopolitan (1886 to 2005)
  • Good Housekeeping (1885 to 2005)
  • Parents (1926 to 2005)
  • Seventeen (1944 to 2005)
  • She (1955 to 2003)
