19th century slut-shaming

Title

19th century slut-shaming

Description

Bloomers weren't invented by Amelia Bloomer - she heard about them from a woman who saw them in Europe. They were huge! Parachute pants under a knee-length skirt. But the floor-length, corseted dress "respectable" women otherwise wore made it hard to breathe and hard to move. 1/2

Mid-19th century slut-shaming: the radical women of Western NY briefly embraced dress reform as a cause & bloomers were the rage. But the gawking from men was so intense that suffragists concluded the costume distracted from their message, and most dropped it. #PlusCaChange 2/2
