Shafts,
1892-1900

Shafts was an idealistic, if slightly esoteric, radical and feminist paper. The cover design, showing a female figure aiming arrows of wisdom and justice, symbolises its view of the New Woman. The contents, by Charlotte Stopes, Dora Montefiore, Matilda Sharpe among others, were more practical: a typical issue included reviews, news of the Independent Labour Party, articles on sport, a discussion of women's franchise, and a serial.
