Can Women’s Magazine’s Do Serious Journalism? (2)

Last week, the feminist World wide web exploded with censure for the British quarterly Port Magazine. Tiny is identified about Kaye except that she worked from the 1940s to the 1950s and most likely in Hollywood, California.

None of the females in this era had a huge number of folks or magazines to evaluate their body image to. Magazines had been for the wealthy and the literate. There had been some nutritionists in the first half of the 20th century who encouraged women to lift light weights in order to maintain a very good female type and during the 1940s numerous movie stars had been lifting light weights to maintain tone.
