Title

The Woman's journal. (Boston, Mass.) 1917

Description

In 1870, Lucy Stone and her husband, Henry Browne Blackwell, founded The Woman’s Journal, a weekly newspaper. Their daughter, Alice Stone Blackwell began work as an editor in 1883 and became the sole editor until 1917. At its founding, the Woman's Journal absorbed the Woman’s Advocate. In 1910 it absorbed the National American Woman Suffrage Association's (NAWSA) publication, Progress. In 1917, Woman's Journal sold the newspaper to Carrie Chapman Catt's Leslie Woman Suffrage Commission, which merged it with the Woman Voter, and National Suffrage News to form The Woman Citizen. From 1917-1920, the Woman Citizen was the official organ of NAWSA and was published weekly, biweekly, and finally monthly until December 1927, when it was once again named The Woman’s Journal. It ceased publication in June 1931.

This bound volume includes every issue published from January 6, 1917 until May 26, 1917, after which it became The Woman Citizen.
