The Demise of the Women’s Pages
The “golden era” of the women’s pages was the 1950s and early 1960s. Yet, the end was on the way. While the women who worked in the sections made the most of their positions, journalism critics continued to describe the sections as “ghettos.” Further, women’s liberation leaders wanted to see the end of the women’s pages. Ultimately, the sections were turned into lifestyle or features sections, and most of the women editors lost their positions.
