Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'This is a worthwhile and timely project, which provides a companion to recent scholarship in this area... It is delightful to come across generous quotations from such a diversity of writers... It is in recovering such forgotten writers that this book excels.' - Felicity James, Times Literary Supplement

'This encyclopedia is a rich and interesting read, busy with cross-references and topic entries that encourage further contextual explorations.' - Diana Wheeler, Feminist Collections: A Quarterly of Women's Studies Resources
