The New Woman: The Bicycle and “Rational Dress”

Project by: Sara Lambert (student)

I created this Padlet for my English class on Victorian Short Fiction with Professor Sarah Bilston. The assignment was to create a digital exhibition about the Victorian New Woman. We could focus on any aspect of the New Woman, and I chose to look at the relationship between the popularity of the bicycle and the rise of the Rational Dress Movement. It explores how various parts of society responded to the New Woman, her choices, and her freedom.

This projected is associated with the course: ENGL 222
