The British workwoman.About this object
While some mid-Victorian magazines were beginning to promote feminist views, others firmly supported women's traditional domestic rôle. The British Workwoman aimed to educate wives, mothers and daughters in their responsibilities as guardians of the home and family - the 'solemn duties' suggested by the motto prominently reproduced at the head of each issue. Scripture lessons, improving stories, biographical anecdotes and philanthropic articles, combined with vivid illustrations to produce a remarkably successful paper which lasted until the eve of the first World War. Published from 1863-1913 Library has 1 bound volume. nos.222-301 incl.Date Made
