THE RADICALS: REVOLUTIONARY WOMEN Appeal to the Men of Great Britain on behalf of the Women [1798] Mary Hays 318pp A Letter to the Women of England on the Injustice of Mental Subordination [1799] "Anne Frances Randall" (Mary Robinson) 104pp The Female Advocate: Or An attempt to Recover the Rights of Women from Male Usurpation [1799] Mary Anne Radcliffe 176ppThese key texts, produced during the revolutionary 1790s, were written by three female radicals who had been inspired by Mary Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Woman Mary Hays, Mary Robinson and Mary Anne Radcliffe continued her campaign in their spirited and influential treatises which argue against the subordination of women. THE WIVES: THE RIGHTS OF MARRIED WOMEN Reflections on Marriage [1730] Mary Astell 132pp A Letter to the Queen on Lord Chancellor Cranworth's Marriage and Divorce Bill [1855] 109pp A Review of the Divorce Bill of 1856 [1857] Caroline Norton 184pp Opinions of the Press on the Property of Married Women [1877] Anon 20pp Wife Torture in England [1878] Frances Power Cobbe 64pp Marriage as it was, as it is & as it should be [1879] Annie Besant 52pp "A Doll's House Repaired" [1891] Eleanor Marx Aveling and Israel Zangwill 13pp On the Dangers of Marriage 1 [1913] Christabel Pankhurst 9pp "The Co-operative Housewife" [1903] Rosalind Nash 35pp The Married Woman: Is she a person? [1934] Anon 22ppThe campaign that set out to improve conditions for married women, challenged the way in which marriage legitimized the subordination of women. The law, by inscribing a wife as the property of her spouse, did little to protect her from mistreatment by her husband. The reforms brought about by influential campaigners whose work is represented in this volume, eventually led to more enlightened legislation like the Married Women's Property Act. THE MOTHERS: CONTROVERSIES OF MOTHERHOOD The Separation of Mother and Child by the Law of "Custody of Infants" considered [1838] Caroline Norton 55pp The Law of Population [1889] Annie Besant 48pp Maternity: Letters from Working Women [1915] Margaret Llewelyn Davies 211pp "The Claims of Mothers and Children" [1918] Margaret Llewelyn Davies 10pp Radiant Motherhood [1920] Marie Stopes 246ppThe changing role of motherhood is reflected in these texts which explore the issues surrounding contraception, child-care and a mother's rights of access to her children. The controversies arising from the conflict between working mothers and maternal duty revised notions of motherhood which previously had resided within idealized representations that are challenged by these writers. THE CAMPAIGNERS: WOMEN AND SEXUALITY Irritation and Hypertrophy of the Clitoris [1866] Isaac Baker Brown 23pp Prostitution; Governmental Experiments in Controlling it [1870] John Chapman 62pp An Appeal to the People of England on the Recognition and Superintendent of Prostitutes by Government [1869] Josephine Butler 36pp A Letter to the Mothers of England [1889] 22pp The Constitutional Iniquity of the Contagious Diseases Act of 1866 and 1869 [1895] Josephine Butler 4pp The Great Scourge and How to End it [1913] 166pp The Government Report on the Great Scourge [1913] 3pp How to Cure the Great Pestilence [1913] 3pp Plain Facts about a Great Evil [1913] 3pp Chastity and the Health of Men [1913] Christabel Pankhurst 8pp The Truth about White Slavery [1913] Teresa Billington-Greig 19pp The Truth about Venereal Disease [1933] Marie Stopes 6
