Description
When Lady Mary Wortley Montagu visited the baths in Turkey in 1717, she was so tightly corseted that the women bathing there were convinced that her husband had locked her into some devious machine. Montagu not only envied the free and luxurious nudity of the bathers, she was also drawn to the apparent liberty of other facets of their lives. Illustrated with color and black and white photos and sketches, this book follows many such intrepid women over the following 200 years, for whom the Middle East was not merely exotic; traveling there gave them enormous freedom to make their own choices and form their own opinions, liberated from their staid societies back home.
