Program Details

Newspaper advice columns started as lovelorn columns during Yellow Journalism as a way of showing that newspapers had a “heart.” These columns typically ran in the women’s section of metropolitan newspapers, many in Florida, and included a mixture of content, from traditional to progressive. Learn how these columns affected Floridian women’s lives and relationships in the 1950s and 1960s in this presentation.
