Presented here are all four chapters of Mill's essay written in 1861, which address the legal subordination of women as manifested in their exclusion from the political process and their lack of any rights within marriage. Principally considered is the relation of the sexes within the family structure as a paradigm of, and the seedbed for, the general social and political structure that surrounds it. Edited by Sue Mansfield, this carefully annotated volume also contains an introduction, a list of principal dates in the life of John Stuart Mill, and a bibliography.

Industry Reviews

"An excellent and affordable edition, with a pithy introduction by Okin that that contextualizes and summarizes the argument well. Mill's work affords insight not only into the issue of women's emancipation, but also into the world of 19th century liberalism: its views of history, of class, and of slavery..." -- Peter C Caldwell, Rice University. "...A clear and helpful introduction by Susan Okin, one of the leading feminist scholars of our generation, as well as a useful bibliography and chronology of Mill's life... Invaluable for teaching and scholarship alike..." -- Ian Shapiro, Yale University.
