Overview

John Stuart Mill's The Subjection of Women is a landmark work both in the long history of women's struggles for political, legal, economic, and personal equality, and in the shorter history of rigorous intellectual analyses of women's subordination. One of the lasting legacies of Mill's The Subjection of Women is its careful argument for the need for justice at both the 'public' and the 'private' levels, which requires changes at the domestic level that are as radical in the 21st century as they were in the 19th. The essays collected in this critical edition represent a variety of interpretations both of the kind of feminism Mill represents and of the specific arguments he offers in The Subjection of Women including their lexical ordering and relative merit. Each selection is preceded by a brief and useful summary of the author's position, intended to assist readers encountering the material for the first time

Editorial Reviews

APA Newsletter On Feminism and Philosophy
Spanning twenty years, the essays in this volume are presented as moments in an ongoing dialogue. One essay makes a compelling case for a particular line of interpretation and then the next stands this reading on its head. The result is a rich dialogue and debate, a compelling and highly readable book, sure to be of interest to scholars, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates alike.
— Jean Keller, College of St. Benedict
Deborah Boyle
This very useful collection brings together the best recent writing on Mill's controversial essay, highlighting the diversity of interpretations of Mill's feminism. It will be an indispensable volume for Mill scholars as well as those interested in the history of feminism.

I believe this to be the best volume published so far to assist a reading of Mill's The Subjection of Women. Altogether, it is a useful contribution to the literature on Mill and a helpful guide to readers of his work.
