The Don’t Worry Club was a religious and social movement in the late nineteenth century, founded by Theodore Frelinghuysen Seward. Seward began the movement on the assumption that worry was the greatest threat to happy home life. Founded on very Victorian principles, the movement focused on female “affections and intuitions” as a means to throw off the dogmas of the Christian faith and reach “spiritual emancipation.”
