The Louis Couperus Museum in the Hague this autumn hosts an exhibition on women and reading: The Limits of Propriety: Women and Reading around 1900. I will definitely be going; watch this space for a review.
From the site:
The exhibition examines the development of the views on the limits of propriety around 1900 and the position of Couperus’ work in it. Paintings, water colours and reproductions give an interesting image of how women read in those days. A collection of ‘forbidden literature’ gives insight in the supposed dangers to which the feminine soul was exposed.
