Nudism, playgroups, pre-marital agreements, male breast-feeding - these are just some of the startling proposals for women's emancipation discovered in this unique anthology. A fascinating collection, it brings together the many diverse political extents of early nineteenth-century British feminism, as well as representing the works of literary figures such as Shelley, Tennyson and the Brontes. Complete with an extensive bibliography, biographical index and illuminating contextualization, it will provide an invaluable tool for scholars and students of feminism, women's history, and early nineteenth-century literature.
