Being good : women's moral values in early America by Martha Saxton ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How do people decide what is "good" and what is "bad"? How does a society set moral guidelines--and what happens when the behavior of various groups differs from these guidelines? Martha Saxton tackles these and other fascinating issues in Being good, her history of the moral values prescribed for women in early America. Saxton begins by examining seventeenth-century Boston, then moves on to eighteenth-century Virginia and nineteenth-century St. Louis. Studying women throughout the life cycle--girls, young unmarried women, young wives and mothers, older widows--through their diaries and personal papers, she also studies the variations due to different ethnicities and backgrounds. In all three cases, she is able to show how the values of one group conflicted with or developed in opposition to those of another. And, as the women's testimonies make clear, the emotional styles associated with different value systems varied. A history of American women's moral life thus gives us a history of women's emotional life as well. Saxton argues that women's morals changed from the days of early colonization to the days of westward expansion, as women became at once less confined and less revered by their men--and explores how these changes both reflected and affected trends in the nation at large

"It's Hollywood in the 1950s and everything is big ... and not many come bigger than Jayne Mansfield. Her husband, Mickey Hargitay, remembers the incredible life story of a woman born Vera Jayne Palmer. The journey to Jayne Mansfield begins in Dallas, where a sweet not so dumb high school student decides that her blonde bombshell looks might be her ticket to Hollywood stardom. But Jayne doesn't want to be just a starlet. She longs for serious roles that will give her a chance to use her talent. Mickey can only watch her heart-wrenching struggle as Jayne fights against her stereotype as a ditzy blonde but each encounter sends her deeper into despair. Soon the search for better movie roles begins and ends with a bottle in her hands. Painfully Mickey and Jayne's relationship crumbles, neither of them aware of the looming tragedy that is about to strike and change everything"--Container
