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
