Abstract

This is a study of women's magazine consumption in the home. It explores issues of time and space, and addresses the importance the women who took part in the study place on magazine consumption in their lives, given the ‘juggling’ lifestyle experienced by most of them. The study reveals family life to be a landscape within which these women carve out what they perceive as valuable and rare time and space for themselves. The authors argue that in contemporary family life women's magazines play a key part in the quest for me‐time and time away from others, in both a tangible and experiential sense.
