5.0 out of 5 stars Essential text on Victorian Literature and Womens Studies, 11 May 2010
This review is from: A Widening Sphere: Changing Roles of Victorian Women (University Paperbacks) (Paperback)
--------------------------------

Much cliched thinking clouds our understanding of precisely what options were open or barred to Victorian Women.

In fact the 19th-century saw a steady widening of the phere of women's activities as the plight of the female underwent gradual but irreversible change.

The essays in this companion volume to 'Suffer and Be Still' testify to the dual nature of the legal and social constraints of the period.

By uncovering new data and reinterpreting old, the contributions to this volume debunk some of the myths surroundng the victorian woman and alter stereotypes on which many of today's oppresive social customs are based.
