A voice from the factories : 1836 by Caroline Sheridan Norton( )

29 editions published between 1836 and 2011 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Caroline Norton - granddaughter of R.B. Sheridan, editor, contributor to literary annuals, friend of Lord Melbourne - was one of the most successful literary women of her day, a poet whose work has been strangely neglected. An unhappy marriage led to separation from her children, her anguish flowing into this anonymously-published testament to the abuse of child-labour. Poised between Wordsworth's appalled portrayal in the Excursion of the factory child, lungs filled with cotton fibres, and the more famous protests of the Victorian novel, the poem has brevity, political relevance, and force."--Jacket

A letter to the Queen on Lord Chancellor Cranworth's marriage and divorce bill by Caroline Sheridan Norton( )

21 editions published between 1855 and 2010 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Caroline Norton (1808-1877) was a Victorian author and campaigner for social reform, especially reform of women's legal rights. In this lucidly written account Norton describes how upon marriage in 1855 women became legally 'non-existent': they could not bring cases to court; they could not enter into a contract; they could not instigate a divorce and their possessions, earnings and any bequests made to them automatically became their husband's property. Norton explains how this lack of legal autonomy affected women if they became estranged from their husbands, using her own experiences for illustration and recommending changes which would improve women's legal position. Published in 1855 when Parliament was debating the subject of divorce reform, this volume shows the legal position of women at this time. It provides the opinions of contemporary legislators in support and opposition on the issues of women's legal rights and reform of divorce laws
