English Feminism 1780-1980

by Barbara Caine
£39.00   paperback  Oxford University Press (1997)

English Feminism 1780-1980 by Barbara Caine The first complete overview of the history of 'modern' English feminism, from the French Revolution to the election of Margaret Thatcher. Barbara Caine's fascinating analysis examines the relationship between feminist thought and actions, and wider social and cultural change over 2 centuries. She investigates the complex questions surrounding the concept of a feminist 'tradition', and shows how much the feminism of any particular period related to the years preceding or following it. She also addresses the language of feminism: the introduction and changing meanings of the term 'feminist'; the importance of literary representations of women; and the question of how one defines feminism.
