SC: How did womens magazine articles in the 1950 and 60s change?
They moved away on articles on home making and moved to articles on beauty. Fashion also moved up the agender, with less about how to make it and more about how to wear it

SC: With consumption at the top of the agender, what were readers being reminded of?
Readers were reminded that they should look and feel the best they could and the best way to achieve this was by purchasing the latest cosmetics and hair care advertised within the magazine pages. This is still the same today in this mag
