Women in Print (Issue No. 6)
The sixth issue of Jennifer Trontz's twice yearly publication is another foray into the rich visual history of female representation in popular printed media. Filled with images from the 2000s, nineties, eighties, and earlier decades, each issue presents a number of visual tropes and practices to consider.
In this issue, Trontz focuses on "feminine touch" in gendered advertising, packaging from India, dressing—and posing—for success according to John T. Molloy's 1977 book, and posture.
Other subjects covered include stock photography (of laughing women eating salad and other visual tropes); the visual culture of the Girl Scouts; and facial exercises for women. Guest contributor Elizabeth Goodspeed shares a collection of cigarette cards featuring representations of women from around the world.
