Sample text

A recorded history of women’s leisure is virtually nonexistent. ” A delineation of the leisure of women and men has been lacking; the experiences of women have not been acknowledged or separated from those of men. Instead, it has been assumed that their leisure was the same; therefore, the history of “leisure” has been in reality a history of men’s leisure. As suggested by Lerner, “Only a new history firmly based on the recognition (of women) and equally concerned with men, women, the establishment, and the passing away of patriarchy can lay claim to being a truly universal history” (1975, p.

These “apologetic” women often tried to avoid being labeled as deviant by assuming the seemingly insurmountable task of trying to remain feminine and yet excel in non-traditional leisure pursuits. The apologetic was seen when women attributed their success to luck and not skill, when they dressed as femininely as possible, and when they treated their achievements as trivial. ” Much of women’s leisure was still centered within the home and was a function of family and sex-role expectations. It was not until the social tumult of the 1960–1970s that recreation and leisure for women was perceived as an issue of freedom and equality.

They connoted vigor while the ideal woman was supposed to be delicate. Leisure that occurred outside the home and allowed for expression of emotions also conflicted with the ideal woman’s propriety, modesty, and circumspectness. The traits of passiveness, obedience to husband, circumspectness of behavior, and most of all, attractiveness were deemed necessary to maintain the Victorian image of womanhood. By avoiding exercise and cultivating a pale face and an incapacity to do work, a woman gave the appearance of gentility—to have facial color and muscular strength was a sign of having to work for a living (Gerber, Felshin, Berline, & Wyrick, 1974).
