The final chapter weighs up the trajectories of serialized fiction and women's magazines in the final decades of the nineteenth century to ask what effects Braddon's, Marryat's and Wood's work had on the close relationship between fiction and the female press. Middlebrow women's magazines and feminist newspapers of the 1890s, like Woman at Home, The Englishwoman, Our Mothers and Daughters, and Woman's Signal, while seemingly antithetical in their attitudes towards the ‘new woman’, shared strategies for dealing with the female figure that correspond with those used by the author-editors of the 1860s. As it had for Braddon, Wood, and Marryat, the periodical press of the 1890s provided a space in which conventions of gender and genre could be re-thought for a female audience.
