Eve's Century A Sourcebook of Writings on Women and Journalism 1895-1918
Answers, forecasts, fantasies and farewells are illustrated here. Examples of American and British journalism for and about women, drawn from the period 1890-1918, allow today's readers to situate themselves as readers at the dawn of the twentieth century. The selections range from the iconoclastic... Expand to the trivial, from proposals for the disenfranchisement of the male to a dinner menu for the first Christmas of the twentieth century. Eve's Century shows how women's anticipations were driven by the rapidly changing conditions then surrounding their world, which she illustrates with sections on monarchy, women and war, colonial women, the politics of emancipation, and girlhood. With an introduction about women's journalism at the turn of the century, the book is arranged by subject to focus on what the pivotal moment of transition into the twentieth century represented for women.
