Archaic. a woman of loose morals
You can tell she’s a Moll. Her chest is flashing.
Why is it that whore or moll or etc are generally considered female? Let’s be real. Men are whores too. You know what term I really object to? Man-whore. As though you need to differentiate by sex. i.e. whores are women. but some men are kinda like those women of loose morals.

This is my favorite blog you’ve ever posted and the first time I’ve been inspired to read something from your list. Moll Flanders is totally happening.
It’s not as though this is a new rant for me. Man-whore is a term denigrating to women, and we should just acknowledge that some people, regardless of their sex, are loose. But I am totally loving this book. I’m about 10-15% through it.
Also, are you sure you aren’t picking this one, cause its about a loose woman?
Amanda you have encoraged to maych your readings-since I read the three Muskteers with in the last year i’ll start with Moll. which I did read as a soph. in college–I remember Moll as a woman with loose morals–Dad
