Our Women and Children

Our Women and Children was a monthly magazine targeting mothers and young women in the United States and published from the 1890s to the 1930s. The magazine was founded in 1891 by Sarah Weeks Vann, and it aimed to address topics that were of concern to women.magazine-cover-not-available.png

The magazine tackled various issues that women faced at the time, including child-rearing, education, cooking, household management, and fashion. Our Women and Children also included educational and literary works, with contributions from leading writers and journalists, such as Jack London, Ida Tarbell, and Nellie Bly.

In addition to its serious content, the magazine also included popular features such as short stories, fashion illustrations, and puzzles. Our Women and Children also organized various contests, such as essay competitions and recipe contests, with prizes for the winners.

Our Women and Children experienced significant success during its publication and was widely read by women across the country. The magazine's focus on education and social issues helped to shape attitudes towards women's roles in society during the progressive era.

However, by the 1930s, the magazine faced stiff competition from new publications targeting women, and it eventually ceased publication. Today, Our Women and Children remains an important publication in the history of women's magazines, and its legacy continues to inspire new generations of feminist writers and publishers.{{Categories}}
