Even then they were typically chaperoned by male relatives. Clothing gear for travel related activities like bicycling, horseback riding, and mountain climbing were originally designed only for males. This essay will try to deduce what kinds of difficulties women had to confront and how British women’s and girl’s travel experiences differed from the experiences of British men in the 19th century. To certify my thought I will analyse some letters and books written by travelling women.
