A Map of the Open Country of a Woman’s Heart

Love of admiration. Love of dress. Love of display. Coquetry. Sentiment. Caprice. Fickleness. Enthusiasm. Good sense. Vanity. Selfishness.

Nary a smidgeon of intellect. Logic. Rational thought. Leadership. Honour. Honesty. Ability to run a household, manage children/significant other/parents/in-laws and hold down a job (not that the fine print is all that clear).

Obviously sexist by today’s standards.

But we’ll cut D.W. Kellog some slack given he (of course, it is a he!) drew this in the nineteenth century.

And because it’s so pretty.
