Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Morgan delves into 19th century Canada, and the roles of women within that society. We see the interplay of patriotism, loyalty and gender. Where the female expressions of patriotism were interpreted as natural extensions of domestic female roles. But the twist being that here the women were expressing themselves in a public arena, by publicly making efforts of patriotism.

Then there were the traditional warnings about virtuous (ie. middle and upper class women) being seduced by rogues. This is basically unchanged from the attitude prevalent in Britain and the rest of Europe at the time.
