Woman as citizen: race, class, and the discourse of women's citizenship, 1894-1909
Articles in three women's publications published before and after the turn of the 20th century were examined to determine these publications' constructions of the concept of women's citizenship to better understand the role of the media in shaping and/or reinforcing ideas about women's public identity. Analysis of the content of The Courant, The Socialist Woman and Woman's Era indicates four constructions of women's public identity: woman as mother, woman as morally superior, woman as altruistic and woman as equal to man.

Woman in front of the Sun: Journey toward a poem
A writer narrates her feelings as she arrives on the San Juan Island which resulted an excitement and feeling of joyful anticipation. She steps out of the plane's cabin into light so intense that the attendant at the bottom of the steps is transformed into an outline of a woman against the white field of the runway, a shadow figure, as in Miro's painting 'Woman in Front of the Sun', almost instantly her skin dampens with perspiration, her body desperately trying to adjust to the heat and humidity.
