Those poor Victorian era wives

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Thjey did it to my Granny - locked her up in a 'mental institution '    why,  she was 'different' and read tarot and crystal ball for 'strange  people'  (she was actually from another culture and used to have friends from that culture visit her .  - so they locked her up .

 

They did it to Ida Craddock, who wrote sex education books for men as women where being abused and injured sexually by their husbands - so they locked her up (and she killed herself in jail)

 

Women could be locked up or admitted by relatives for a variety of reasons , apparently even for 'novel reading ' .

 

Most 'male reasons ' seem based on physical trauma ( eg. head or falling injury )

They even admit a reason for admission as 'false confinement '      :huh:

Wise, is sitting naked in a tree. 

Eating ripe fruit, breathing fresh air.

 

Unwise, is letting the neighbors see you do it.
