How did print culture affect women in the 19th century?
Answer:

  • Women became important as readers as well as writers.
  • Penny magazines were especially meant for women, as were manuals teaching proper behaviour and housekeeping.
  • When novels began to be written in the 19th century, women were seen as important readers.
  • Some of the best known novelists had defined a new type of woman; as a person with will, strength of personality, determination and the power to think.
