These qualities are also at the heart of its website, thegentlewoman.com, a virtual place where real women, real events and real things are enjoyed.
This seventeenth edition of The Gentlewoman corrals a cavalcade of beloved heroines and fearless females in its 336 pages with Hollywood's towering talent Allison Janney leading the pack as cover star, photographed by Colin Dodgson.
