"Josephine's Mother" + "A 21st Century Feminist" are about perception: reading and being read.
The mother looks alert and details such as a watch and the wall plug indicate that hers is a contemporary world, although she wears clothing typical of a bygone age.
This is the current daily attire of my daughter-in-law. In the Netherlands she is frowned at because it is assumed that she comes from a conservative background, while in New Zealand people tended to respond out of curiousity. This is a contemporary portrait of a young Dutch woman, whose outer appearance is read in strongly contrasting ways between New Zealand and in the Netherlands.
These titles point to a feminist perspective being similiar to an alternate cultural perspective.
