I had to laugh at this in the second post. "the book Victoria's Inferno."

It's a clear example of a common cliche - put in a woman and make it her fault.

Queen Victoria didn't have any mills.   Mills were owned, operated and supervised by men. Victoria and her husband, Albert, felt more concern for the poor of the nation than did the men who were on the scene, exploiting them.
