"This comparative study analyses the emergence of feminist movements and their differing characters in Britain, France and the United States. Jane Rendall examines the social, economic and cultural factors which affected women's status in society, and led some women to act, individually and collectively, to seek to change it. The Enlightenment emphasis on women's 'nature' and the evangelical stress on the moral potential of women contributed to a framework of ideas which could be used by conservatives and by feminists. Among the middle classes, discussion focused on the need to improve women's education and on the strengths and limitations of domesticity. Patterns of paid employment for women were shifting, and Jane Rendall suggests that the weak position of women in the labor market during the early stages of industrialization restricted their ability to associate together. Yet involvement in religious, political and philanthropic movements could provide a means by which women might come together to identify their common concerns and learn the necessary political skills. Jane Rendall places the origins of feminism in the broader context of social and political change in the nineteenth century, looking both at the changing relationship between paid work and domestic life and at the links between feminism and class and political conflict in three different societies."--Publisher description

War, empire and slavery, 1770-1830( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The wars of the period 1770-1830, including the North and South American wars of independence and the revolutionary and Napoleonic wars, are frequently considered to be the first wars fought by all combatants as 'national wars'. Yet they touched every continent of the globe. New ideas about citizenship, patriotism and national belonging circulated far beyond Europe and North America, as some European empires were fatally weakened and others greatly extended their power. This volume explores the impact of revolution and war in slave and free societies including southern India, the Caribbean, South America, and southern Africa. Articles discuss how experience of war helped to shape the individual and collective identities of men and women, slaves and soldiers, colonial rulers and indigenous peoples. Particular attention is paid to the ways in which men and women imagined themselves and their world, with reference to the complexities of gender, class, religion, race, ethnicity and nation
