The History of Little Goody Two-Shoes (7)

Publication Date: February 08, 2017

Chapter: Children's Literature

When Goody Two-Shoes was all growed up (which I'm assuming meant she was anywhere between 14 and 18, this being Ye Olde England), a rich nobleman immediately rolled in to pick her up. She was doing very well as a teacher and as a nanny for the rich dude's children, so sure, why not. So yes, Goody Two-Shoes is the proverbial rags to riches story, except that women couldn't earn their own riches in society, so she had to marry into them. That's honestly a pretty questionable moral.
