✏Selections from The Girl s Own Paper 1880 1907 Book Summary : The Girl’s Own Paper, founded in 1880, both shaped and reflected tensions between traditional domestic ideologies of the period and New Woman values in the context of the figure of the New Girl. These selections from the journal demonstrate the efforts of its publisher (the Religious Tract Society) to combat the negative moral influence of sensational popular literature while at the same time addressing the desires of its audience for exciting reading material and information about topics mothers could not or would not discuss. Selected fiction gives a rich sense of the conventions and the domestic ideology of the time; the nonfiction prose ranges from essays on conduct and household management to articles on new opportunities in education and work.

✏The Girl s Own Book Summary : The eleven contributors to The Girl's Own explore British and American Victorian representations of the adolescent girl by drawing on such contemporary sources as conduct books, housekeeping manuals, periodicals, biographies, photographs, paintings, and educational treatises. The institutions, practices, and literatures discussed reveal the ways in which the Girl expressed her independence, as well as the ways in which she was presented and controlled. As the contributors note, nineteenth-century visions of girlhood were extremely ambiguous. The adolescent girl was a fascinating and troubling figure to Victorian commentators, especially in debates surrounding female sexuality and behavior. The Girl's Own combines literary and cultural history in its discussion of both British and American texts and practices. Among the topics addressed are the nineteenth-century attempt to link morality and diet; the making of heroines in biographies for girls; Lewis Carroll's and John Millais's iconographies of girlhood in, respectively, their photographs and paintings; genre fiction for and by girls; and the effort to reincorporate teenage unwed mothers into the domestic life of Victorian America.

✏Girls Own Stories Book Summary : The first book to examine the contribution of women film directors from Australia and New Zealand to world cinema. Jane Campion's highly acclaimed film, The Piano, finally brought international attention to the Australian film industry, but it was 25 years ago when Gillian Armstrong directed My Brilliant Career, and during this time there has been a significant body of work produced by women directors in Australia and New Zealand. Girls' Own Stories analyses the links between the short film, avant garde and mainstream, tracing how early themes are often reworked. Major preoccupations are evident, such as the position of women in colonial society; the dysfunctional or 'deviant' family; culture and ethnicity; power and sexuality; desire and deviance.
