Sept / Oct 2019: The 1940s

The 1940s bring a lot of things to mind. Glamorous Hollywood starlets. Fabulous hairstyles. Some of the most memorable movies of all time. And of it, of course, looms the Second World War. This issue of Femnista explores a little of everything, from a veterinarian in the British downs to the dirty streets of New York city, to the harrowing adventures of Glider pilots. We hope to introduce you to some new favorites, and commemorate some classic films. Enjoy.
