"This work covers the history of the individualist feminism movement and of three prominent publications that rose in its defense: The Word, Liberty and Lucifer the Light Bearer. These often-overlooked journals, which published some of the most important ideas on feminism, anarchism and personal liberty, are fully covered herein." "Biographies and selections of writing from contributors to these magazines feature the remarkable women and men who laid many of the foundations for modern feminist thought. Included among those profiled are Angela Heywood, who first defended abortion based on women's self-ownership of her body, and Lillian Harman, who was jailed at 16 for being married without state or church ceremonies."
Queen Silver : the godless girl by Wendy McElroy( Book )

"Queen Silver is a biography of one of America's most amazing feminist, socialist, and freethought figures. Silenced by the brutal political repression that led to the McCarthy hearings, Queen's rich legacy has been all but lost to posterity. Wendy McElroy rediscovers it. She chronicles the incredible life of her longtime friend by drawing on personal interviews, published reports, letters, a set of the rare Queen Silver's Magazine (1923-1931), and a vast library of family papers."

On liberty by John Stuart Mill( )

7 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Liberty - John Stuart Mill advocated individual liberty based on a philosophical concept called utilitarianism, or "the greatest happiness for the greater number." This intellectual tradition rejects natural rights, such as those in Jefferson's Declaration of Independence. Despite beginning with a different theoretical foundation than natural rights proponents, Mill reaches a similar conclusion-that diversity in individual thought and action ultimately benefits society. Vindication of the Rights of Woman examines the tumultuous life of Mary Wollstonecraft and the social conditions against which she struggled. It explores her call for female independence against the backdrop of 18th Century England, the French Revolution, and the changing role of women. Mary Wollstonecraftt lived the life she advocated, defying accepted customs for female employment, marriage, and family life

The ratification debates by Wendy McElroy( )

9 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the fall of 1787, the call went out: Each of the 13 states assembled special conventions to consider ratification of a proposed Constitution of the United States. Without ratification by nine conventions, the Constitution would flounder: America would be a league of states, not one nation. At the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, the states - voting as states - had unanimously approved the Constitution. But individual delegates had fiercely opposed certain aspects of the document. Now, they returned to their home states to agitate against the Constitution. Some demanded a bill of rights. Others complained that states' rights had been violated. Some states - such as Delaware and Georgia - quickly and unanimously ratified. Other states - such as Virginia and New York - agonized. Two states - North Carolina and Rhode Island - would not ratify at all without a bill of rights
