As you know, the Life magazine photo archive is now online. We've been showcasing images of women in different decades. Although Life was a weekly until 1972, it hung around as a monthly until 2000.
But as the decades wore on, the magazine became less and less about America and more and more a celebrity-oriented publication; hence this star-filled edition of "The Way We Were: The '80s" (Previously:the '70s, the 60s, the '50s, '40s and the '30s.) In addition, we found very few Life covers from the '80s, though we did find covers of sister publication Time, so we threw those in. You do what you can!
