Question Keywords:askscot, magazines, periodicals, women, UK
Answer:The first woman's magazine to appear in Great Britain appears to be the Ladies' Mercury, published for only four issues in 1690.

The information is given in web articles from the British Library and from the Guardian newspaper (see weblinks below). These should both be a reliable sources of information. It is also corroborated in the book A magazine of her own? by Margaret Beetham, Routledge, 1996.
