The Englishwoman in London: Mothers' Meetings  [8/11]



Essay, Serial


Education, Physical Geography, Domestic Economy

    Justifies the value of mothers' meetings, and laments the fact that the mistress of the household 'took the hint' from school inspectors and 'devoted morning, noon, and night to cram the young ladies with science, to the utter neglect of household instruction'. Notes that the consequence of this is the poor domestic skills of 'hundreds and hundreds of women'. (232)
