Scandalous Fashions

August 1913
America;8/9/1913, Vol. 9 Issue 18, p422
The author talks about a trend in fashion that is morally immodest or indecent. The author mentions letters from readers expressing protest of indecency in dress. The author encourages the citizens who have at heart the preservation of Christian civilization to continue to protest, while clergymen should warn their flocks against the danger of extreme fashion. The author adds that if only the Catholic women would stop buying shameless dresses and insist on modest ones, then a great deal could be done to promote a reform on this matter.
