The thematic profile of the interwar press for women in the Pomeranian Province – the outline of the problem
Languages of publication
Women’s press in the Pomeranian publishing market in the interwar period constituted a new, or even experimental, phenomenon. Local editorial o¢ ces quickly noticed the opportunities women’s press provided. By the end of the 1920s there had been issued eight titles of women’s press – all in the forms of supplements. The next decade brought another five titles – including two independent periodicals. Women’s press supplements were issued by the press bodies of all the most important political parties in the province: „Gazeta Grudziądzka” („Dobra Gospodyni”), „Słowo Pomorskie” („Dom Rodzinny”), „Dzień Pomorski” („Women’s Movement in Pomerania”). The analysis of the content of the supplements and women’s magazines issued in the Pomeranian Province showed that they could be divided into three types: presenting a woman as a housewife, a quasi-modern woman, and an active woman. The types frequently overlapped each other. The Pomeranian press for women did not differ greatly from the titles issued in other regions of Poland. It continued to view a woman as a mother, wife and caretaker of hearth and home.
