Description
"Single women who have been industrious, and who have boldly carved out a career for themselves, can afford to snap their fingers at lost lovers, and thank the fate that at length designed them for a life of single success rather than the possible one of married misery." Published in the last years of Victoria's reign—and presented here in a handsome facsimile edition by the British Library—this little book provides sensible, remarkably modern guidance for Britain's unmarried women and girls in the age of the New Woman. It encourages employment ("the more remunerative the better"), activity ("women would be healthier and none the less beautiful if they possessed firm muscles and strong limbs"), and a certain aloofness toward marriage ("most of those who have married have no idea how they ever came to do such a thing").
