Research Update From 1947

For those don’t follow my Twitter feed @latdailymirror: is a fabulous repository of historic magazines and I have been reading a variety of 1947 issues to immerse myself in the year.

Here’s a thought-provoking essay from the Saturday Review, which says that the gains made by American women since the 1920s were under siege in the postwar era. Women who had to work to support their families during the Depression or in factories during World War II were now being pushed back to the kitchen stove.

Saturday Review, Jan. 18, 1947.
