Overview

'The Odd Women' is a 1893 novel by the English novelist George Gissing. Its themes are women's role in society, marriage, morals and the early feminist movement.

The novel's title is derived ostensibly from the notion that there was an excess of one million women over men in Victorian England. This meant there were "odd" women left over at the end of the equation when the other men and women had paired off in marriage. A cross-section of women dealing with this problem are described in the book and it can be inferred that their lifestyles also sets them apart as odd in the sense of strange. - from Wikipedia
