Women In Print Magazine #5

Depictions of Women in The Printed Media

The fifth issue of Jennifer Trontz's twice yearly publication is another foray into the rich visual history of female representation in popular printed media. Filled with images from the 2000s, nineties, eighties, and earlier decades, each issue presents a number of visual tropes and practices to consider.

In this issue, Trontz focuses on teen self-improvement, first love romances series, "Lysol: For Women," and bawdy beach postcards.

Other subjects covered include Goody Haircare Products, Russian ads featuring images of women, self-help and self-improvement books for teens ("The Teen I Want to Be") and advertisements for fade creams.
