The latest collection in the History of Feminism series brings together a range of documents from the nineteenth-century vivisection controversy, allowing students and researchers to examine its relation to the prominent animal welfare movement and the specific role of women within the movement.
Coverage includes press articles by key pro- and anti-vivisectionist activists in the established press, Victorian government materials, scientific papers and illustrations, and the pamphlets and journals of the anti-vivisectionist movements, and features the writings of:
Frances Power Cobbe, the leader of the anti-vivisection movement, an eminent mid-Victorian feminist journalist, and one of a handful of women to make a steady living writing for the mid-19th century established press.
Other key anti-vivisectionist activists, including Richard Holt Hutton, Louisa Lind-af-Hageby, Ouida de la Ramee, George Hoggan, Anna Kingsford, Mona Caird and selections from anti-vivisectionist periodicals, including the "Home Chronicler," the "Zoophilist "and the "Anti-Vivisectionist.".
The third volume focuses on pro-vivisection writings, generated as the vivisection question moved from consideration of anaesthesia in experimentation, to debate on the Cruelty to Animals Act, through to criticism of the bureaucratic structures that supervised vivisection in England, and the public education pamphlets produced by the Association for the Advancement of Medicine by Research.

Recent collections in this series include "Josephine Butler and the Prostitution Campaigns" and "Women, Madness and Spiritualism" . Forthcoming titles include "Women and Cross Dressing" "1800-1939" and "Feminism and the Periodical Press 1900-1918" .
