De vrouw is erop gebouwd om zonder bezwaar binnenshuis te kunnen leven. Vertalingen van Duitse populariserende zedenkundige werken over man en vrouw in Nederland tussen 1800 en 1840

Abstract – In the first twenty years of the nineteenth century, German popular works about the phenomenon of ‘gender characters’ (about the biological/mental differences between men and women) appeared in translation in great numbers in the Netherlands.
