Little Women, Good Wives: Victorian Constructions of Womanhood in the "Girl's Own Annual 1927."
Delaney, Lesley
Children's Literature in Education, v34 n1 p29-45 Mar 2003
Proposes that the "Girl's Own Annual 1927" displays a distinctly Victorian construction of womanhood which was at odds with the views of "modern" girls in the 1920s. Examines tensions created by these differing social expectations and focuses on the intergenerational debate about the role of women in work and marriage. Suggests that the magazine's aim represents an effort to influence and control the behavior of a rebellious generation. (PM)
