This Chapter explores discourses of whiteness and femininity, revealing how western women's increasing public presence and authority rested on their ability to claim the privileges of 'whiteness', and the ways that the strategic construction of an elevated white womanhood in such exhibitionary formats was dependent on the notion of the primitive savage woman.
