The first two photographic magazines aimed at women, Femina and La Vie Heureuse, created a female role model who could balance age-old convention with new equalities. Often referred to simply as the "modern woman," this captivating figure embodied the hopes and dreams as well as the pressing internal conflicts of large numbers of French women during what was a period of profound change. Full of never-before-studied images of the modern French woman in action, Having it All shows how these early women's magazines exploited new photographic technologies, artistic currents, and literary trends to create a powerful model of French femininity, one that has exerted a lasting influence on French expression. Through an astute blend of historical research, literary criticism, and visual analysis, Mesch's study offers an original window onto a bygone era that can serve as a framework for ongoing debates about feminism, femininity, and work-life tensions."--Jacket."@en ;
