How to Attract Men: April 6, 1894

On April 6, 1894–a short 123 years ago–this article: HOW TO ATTRACT MEN, appeared in The Sun and the Erie County Independent of Hamburg, New York. The article writer, Maude James Chilton, exemplifies the late Victorian-era’s ideas about marriageable women, the relationship between “the Stern as Well as the Fair Sex”, expectations of men for women and women for men, and so much more. Witnessing the changes that have occurred in such matters, from then to now, can be fascinating on a theoretical level, a “throwback to chivalry” perspective, and as a reader and writer of Victorian-era Western Romance–essential to crafting an accurate setting, backdrop, and conflict for fiction.
