Overview

“Admirable, lucid… A splendid textbook (complete with chronologies of significant dates) that offers a competent overview of feminist protest in the Victorian era. It will be widely recommended for students of history and women’s studies courses in higher education.” -- Times Higher Education Supplement

“An excellent, well-researched survey of the many fronts of feminist struggle for equality from 1850 to 1900… The thesis of this small useful book is that the aggressive activities of the well-known British suffragettes have obscured the significance of other areas of the feminist movement in the half-century before 1900. Philippa Levine’s survey of Victorian feminism covers these neglected issues succinctly… A great asset to all courses on modern England and British feminism.” -- American Historical Review
