"I can’t say that the college-bred woman is the most contented woman. The broader her mind the more she understands the unequal conditions between men and women, the more she chafes under a government that tolerates it." — Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906), U.S. suffragist.

An Afternoon Idyll (1874). Auguste Toulmouche (French, Academicism, 1829-1890). Oil on canvas.

Painstaking detail has been put into the modeling of these gowns as well as their luscious fabrics and bright colors. In fact the color pink was a rather recently developed artificial dye at the time.
