Summary

Conduct books for women were read in increasingly large numbers in Britain throughout the nineteenth century. Such documents are therefore a highly useful tool in tracing changes in social norms, etiquette, and the role of women throughout this period. This book collates extracts from a range of nineteenth-century conduct literature works, which cover topics such as household and health management, female education, and suitable political and vocational pursuits for women. The collection provides an important resource for students of nineteenth-century British history and gender studies, and will also be of interest to those interested in the history of feminism more generally.
