Victorian woman animation-- moves glasses back & forth Well Read Links banner

Featuring literature related Links, with particular attentionpicture of Queen Victoria, caption reads:  The Queen is most anxious to enlist everyone who can speak or write to join in checking this mad, wicked folly of "women's rights" with all its attendent horrors on which her poor, feeble sex is bent, forgetting every sense of womanly feeling and propriety.  From a letter 29, May 1870. to 19th century and women's studies sites. Most of these sites are published by professional scholars and/or researchers. This is a great place to start your research, but remember, the library has more! In fact, this isn't even everything on the Internet.

Two "Gibson Girls," fashionable young women
strove to have an incredibly thin waistline-- the

Note: Links frequently move, or disappear entirely. No links collection is ever easy to update. If one of the above links doesn't work, try another. If you still can't find what you need, try a good search engine-- I like the Mamma Search Engine for new pages, and but some links will be "so-so". Then, remember to try the library! Not everything is available online. You sometimes need to pick up a real book.
