Museum: Kate Craver Thesis, 1994

Lines from the Past: Greensboro Female College and its New Women (Thesis, 1994)
by Kate G. Craver

According to the author “About 1886, after the college had been in operation for forty years, the New Woman began to take shape as a powerful social-literary figure. Her new values challenged the image of True Womanhood so cherished by the patriarchal society of the antebellum South. This thesis will show that the young women of Greensboro Female College knew about the New Woman in spite of their restricted social environment.”
