Young Woman's Journal

Young Woman's Journal was an official publication of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints between 1897 and 1929. It was an official periodical of the Young Ladies' Mutual Improvement Association (YLMIA), then the LDS Church's organization for adolescent females.

Young Woman's Journal was founded in 1889 by Susa Young Gates, a volunteer worker within the YLMIA. Throughout its history, the periodical was edited by the general leadership board of the YLMIA under the direction of the organization's general presidency and published monthly. In 1929, the magazine was absorbed by the Improvement Era, an official publication of the YLMIA and the church's equivalent organization for male adolescents.

The journal included messages from the MIA conferences, scriptural quotations, a plethora of short stories, recipes, meeting schedules, and pieces about morals, clothing, etc. Unlike current publications of the LDS Church, the Young Woman's Journal was subsidized by advertisements carried in the magazine.
