This book reconstructs the first two decades of the modern feminist magazine ‘Time and Tide’ and explores the periodical’s significance for an interwar generation of British women writers and readers. Unique in establishing itself as the only female-run ‘journal of opinion’ in what press historians describe as the golden age of the weekly review, Time and Tide both challenged persistent prejudices against women’s participation in public life, and played an instrumental role in redefining women’s gender roles and identities. Drawing on extensive new archival research the book offers insights into the history and workings of this periodical that no one has dealt with to date, and makes a major contribution to the history of women’s writing and feminism in Britain between the wars.
