In this influential book, the prototypical feminist writer of her day addressed a range of issues, from the Woman Question to prostitution and slavery, marriage and employment reform, and the European revolutionary movements of the 1840s. A thought-provoking challenge to contemporary assumptions of male privilege, it is a feminist literature classic.

Review: Woman in the Nineteenth Century

User Review  - Jasmine - Goodreads

Amazing. Extremely intelligent woman writing great feminist prose much ahead of her time. I have a few issues on the extreme focus on hetero marriage and Christianity, but given the time and the audience it's obvious why. Love her! Read full review
