Abstract

The Girl’s Own Paper (1880-1965) was, like its counterpart for boys, published by the Religious Tract Society. It is regarded as the most influential publication for girls of the nineteenth century, and cultural critics suggest that it played an important role in shaping ideas of girlhood. Like the Boy’s Own Paper, its weekly editions could be preserved in an ‘annual’ binding, which was sold at the end of each year. The publication’s contents emphasized education and self-improvement, though there were also a number of lively adventure stories. Girl readers were invited to write in with questions and contributions.
