From the clipping files: Cover of May 1970 issue of Woman's Day magazine

I find this cover fascinating because of the featured articles listed. It shows how American women were at a threshold in history for feminism, women's rights, and changing attitudes toward women. One article "How to help a husband realize his dreams" followed by "The new freedoms girls face, in love and in work" followed by "For young cooks: How to stay out of the kitchen" show just how much was in flux in 1970.

Full cover text reads:
