A Victorian Lady’s finishing touch—the chatelaine. (From Wikipedia)

A chatelaine is a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it. Each chain is mounted with a useful household appendage such as scissors, thimble, watch, key, vinaigrette, household seal, etc.
Chatelaines were worn by many housekeepers in the 19th century and in the 16th century Dutch Republic,where they were typically used as watch chains for the most wealthy. Similar jewellery was also worn by Anglo Saxon women, as seen from the burial record, but its function is uncertain. The name chatelaine derives from the French term châtelaine

How Steampunk Screws With Victorian Gender Norms | Bitch Media

beyondvictoriana:

Bitch magazine covers gender roles in steampunk and gives some interesting commentary about the different impressions created between the aesthetics, science fiction texts, and the subculture community (she also gave some great references to several people in the community for their imput, including Lisa Hager's work on Tor.com.

The biggest critique I have about the article is the author’s argument that women writers of the genre write only about “soft” topics — like romance and urban fantasy elements— and somehow, just by including these elements they don’t also automatically address the tougher social issues that women and marginalized groups face in their stories. Women steampunk writers can be just as critical in their work as men can be when writing about social and cultural politics and tying that into hard technology and science (and wait, women write about those topics too!). In fact, I think that female writers tend to be *more* eager to go into depth about the sociopolitical and economic issues and other “-isms” *while at the same time* adding more fantastical elements into their fiction.

If some old fogey peering through his smudged bifocals can’t discern the cool and important stuff going on, such as the tsunami of anarchic multiculturalists using the steampunk scalpel to dissect the past and reassemble it like a two-dollar watch, that’s his loss; the readers are picking up on it.

(Glad to see the man who coined steampunk giving a shout-out to what the genre is becoming.)

Horrible Histories - Victorian Names. (by Gemma Kate)

Steampunks, why are we not ALL OVER THIS SHIT?

Steampunk United is excited to bring you the opportunity to celebrate Emperor Justinian Stanislaus’ 40th year in this dimension by coming together as steampunks to make this world a little brighter.

It is our resolve at Steampunk United to harness the collective resources of the steampunk community against four global concerns that existed in the Victorian Era, and unfortunately still do today, by engaging in retro-futuristic charitable giving. Together, we believe we can create an alternate history and a better world!

The birthday of the beloved Emperor of the Red Fork Empire provides the impetus for our first opportunity to work for the betterment of this world. He is happy to be the inspiration for such an effort and as he is celebrating 40 years, 40 hundred dollars seemed an appropriate goal. Let us show our love for the Emperor and the world and make a pledge today!

*******************************************************

Many of us have no idea what it’s like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink — even the water in our toilets is clean!

But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

We started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and we need your help.

Please donate to our campaign — anything you can give is a huge help.

100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

Even if you don’t know the Empire or our Emperor, you can still support the cause! Please donate what you can!
