Overview

This major new history of European women's professional activities and organizational roles during the 'long' nineteenth century examines what women could and could not do if they sought activity, purpose, or recognition beyond their own homes. Linda L. Clark surveys women's achievements in literature, art, music, theater, charity, education, medicine, law, and public administration, and examines the relationship between women's professional and philanthropic activity and the rise of feminist organizations. She shows that, despite continuing legal, cultural, and familial obstacles, thousands of ambitious women pursued professional activities for reasons that often combined economic need with aspirations to do meaningful work and gain public recognition. Detailing women's accomplishments from England to Russia, this unique survey enables readers to connect individual life stories with larger political, social, and economic contexts between 1789 and 1914 and is essential reading for students of modern European history, women's history, and gender studies.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Clark (history emerita, Millersville U. of Pennsylvania) examines two avenues by which 19th-century European women from various backgrounds strove to overcome the divide between public and private spheres. The first was seeking more recognition for the public value of their traditional activities, and the second was demanding and gaining access to new opportunities in cultural and professional fields. Among the arenas she samples are literature, performing arts, charity and social reform, education, and women's rights." -Reference & Research Book News
