The Victorian Woman

Instructor: Herb Kaufman

This program explores the daily lives of women during the mid-Victorian era of the 19860s. The Victorian era was the period of Queen Victoria’s reign, from June 1837 until her death on January 22, 1901. The Victorian era seems like another world to us; photography was a new invention and fashions included the hoop skirt, crinolines, and hair jewelry. The one thing that was different was the place of women in society. There were of course perceptive women of independent original thought, but for the huge majority, life was easier if they accepted that a woman’s place was in the home. The story of the Victorian woman is presented through the presentation of original clothing, photographs, magazines, and home implements of the period.
