Having just moved before Christmas and this being my quiet time of the year I have been having a bit of a clear out, one of many odd items sold on eBay was this magazine from 1916.
Brought as a prop I have never read it, however my attention was grabbed by the cover article.
Is woman the weaker sex? Is there, in fact a weaker sex at all? The writer of this article maintains that so far from woman being unfitted for the many strenuous tasks she is now undertaking, they are almost a rest-cure to her after the toil of domestic duties. This being so, is it likely that in time to come she will fold back to the few overcrowded occupations that were formerly her lot.
In the midst of the WW1 anniversaries, it is amazing also how many of these costumes I have recreated in the past year, maybe it’s just my customers but there has been a real interest in women’s war time.
Anyway I’m just going to leave this here for your perusal, enjoy.
