Cult of Domesticity
A new ideal of womanhood and a new ideology about the home arose out of the new attitudes about work and family.
Called the "cult of domesticity," it is found in women's magazines, advice books, religious journals, newspapers, fiction--everywhere in popular culture.
This new ideal provided a new view of women's duty and role while cataloging the cardinal virtues of true womanhood for a new age.
Charles Dana Gibson, No Time for Politics, 1910
