Sample text

Historical categories that are more appropriate to the roles and issues of the “common” woman’s leisure are explored. These categories include the influences of the Victorian ideal of woman, the family, women’s work, women’s involvement in social reforms, the feminist movement, and women’s involvement in physical activities and sport. The Victorian Ideal Women have been perceived as the weaker sex. Often this perception was based on biological structural observations which showed that women in general had narrower and smaller shoulder girdles and broader pelvic girdles than men.

These clubs also attracted children’s mothers to other activities (Lerner, 1979). The social movements which occurred were largely a result of women using their free time to create social change. The outcomes of these movements in providing positive leisure as well as a better quality of life were beneficial to all socio-economic groups and to both women and men. While many social movements were influential, one of the most important social movements for women was the women’s movement. The Influence of the Early Women’s Movement on Leisure The early women’s movement of the 19th century was important to women throughout the world.

Sporting ability was hardly compatible with women’s traditional subordinate role; in fact, sport had the potential to equalize relations between the sexes. By minimizing socially constructed sex differences that had only tenuous biological bases, sport posed a serious threat to the myth of female frailty (Lenskyj, 1986). Time after time, the desire to engage in physical recreation activities would lead to the belief that participation in such activities brought out unladylike behavior and masculine appearance in women.
