An LRB winter lecture by Rosemary Hill.

Clothes come between the naked self and the world. They affect the way we are seen and they imply something about how we see ourselves, something that seems especially true for women.

Writer and historian Rosemary Hill asks whether this is compensation for the fact women have less scope for action than men, or whether it is an advantage to have that extra sense Virginia Woolf called ‘frock consciousness’.
