In dressing for adventure in feminine garb, Frona differs sharply from such earlier models of female athleticism as Calamity Jane and other dime-novel Wild West heroines, who invariably performed their feats of derring-do "nobbily attired in male garb."(27) By having Frona execute her physical feats in feminine clothes that accentuate her shapeliness, London reinforces her sexual essence and shows that the power of the "new womanhood" does not mark it as a sexological manifestation of the "Mannish Lesbian."
