This is a reissue of a remarkable set of womens magazines, originally published in the 1930s and subsequently lost in the turbulence of World War II. Now available to a wider public for the first time, the book is an invaluable cultural and historical resource that is bound to lead to a reevaluation of womens life before the feminist movement. The illustrations are exquisite. Here are political icons such as Dolores Ibarruri -"La Pasionara" -along with Moslem women of Bosnia, women of the "new" Japan, and painters, pilots, scientists, and doctors. Domestic life is portrayed as well as all aspects of womens health and beauty, from African hairstyles to New York cosmetic surgery. Edited by the renowned Rosita Forbes -traveler, explorer, anthropologist, and writer -this is an extraordinary celebration of women in all their rich cultural diversity.
