Freeing the female body : inspirational icons( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stories of remarkable women who devoted their lives to the cause of women's physical liberation are told in this volume. They each shared the same ambition: to free women's bodies through sport.

This collection records the bravery of these forgotten inspirational figures whose determination challenged and overcame convention, custom and prejudice to free women from the ranks of the sexualized, controlled and oppressed

Disreputable pleasures : less virtuous Victorians at play by Mike Huggins( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This irreverent and revisionist collection challenges the conventional view that middle-class Victorian leisure had a respectable and serious purpose and approach. It explores the more sinful and unrespectable Victorian male pleasures, demonstrating the complex interrelationships between such values as manliness, muscularity and machismo, or sensuality, virility and hedonism. It sheds light on the ways in which the public rhetoric of Victorian respectability could be rendered problematic by the practical pursuit of private pleasure.
