This monograph contributes to the debate over how the world wars of the twentieth century may have affected gendered relationships. This is done by examining if and how the Second World War may have affected the images of women and men in Chatelaine magazine. This vivid account, which covers three formative decades of Canadian history through the lens of the modern Canadian woman, bears witness to the richness of our past and to the complexity of the relationships between war, gender and popular culture.
