Just read Wild Women: Crusaders, Curmudgeons and Completely Corsetless Ladies in the Otherwise Virtuous Victorian Era, by Autumn Stephens. It's basically short biographies of 100+ women during the Victorian era who didn't really fit in with the Victorian ideal. Some famous. Some not so famous. The biographies are too short to make this any more than bubblegum reading, but the author helpfully provides a bibliography that has what appears to be one good book on each of her heroines.
