The ideal woman of the Victorian era was a combination of sexual innocence, conspicuous consumption, and worship of the family hearth — with marriage and procreation being a woman's only function. Suffer and Be Still is a collection of ten lively essays which document the feminine stereotypes that Victorian women fought against, but only partially defeated.
