City of women : sex and class in New York, 1789-1860 by Christine Stansell( Book )

32 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Italian and held by 1,639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This highly original work takes a close look at working-class women in early 19th century New York, and shows both the strengths and vulnerabilities of this 'city of women'. Describing the specific moral and economic circumstances of individual female lives, the author makes vivid historical sense of what until now has been obscured by generalization, abstraction, and oversimplification.--
American moderns : bohemian New York and the creation of a new century by Christine Stansell( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early years of the new century, an exuberant band of talented individualists thrown together in a shabby neighborhood - a few square blocks called Greenwich Village - set out to change the world. Committed to free speech, free love, and politically engaged art, they swept away late-Victorian sexual prudery, the cult of domesticity, stodgy bourgeois art, and political conservatism as they clamorously declared the birth of the new." "In this group portrait, Stansell depicts this most colorful generation, the men and women who defined modernity for the America to come."--Jacket

The feminist promise : 1792 to the present by Christine Stansell( Book )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than two centuries, the ranks of feminists have included dreamy idealists and conscientious reformers, erotic rebels and angry housewives, dazzling writers, shrewd political strategists, and thwarted workingwomen. With a deft hand, Stansell paints richly detailed, surprising portraits of well-known leaders: Mary Wollstonecraft, the passionate English writer who in 1792 published the first full-scale argument for the rights of women; Elizabeth Cady Stanton, brilliant and fearless; the imperious, quarrelsome Betty Friedan. Others, too, appear in unforgettable new light, including Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who in the 1970s led a revolution in the constitutional interpretations of women's rights, and Toni Morrison, whose bittersweet prose gave voice to the modern black female experience. Stansell accounts for the failures of feminism as well as the successes. She notes significant moments in the struggle for gender equality, such as the emergence in the early 1900s of the dashing 'New Woman'; the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment, which granted women the right to vote; the post-World War II collapse of suburban neo-Victorianism; and the radical feminism of the 1960s--all of which led to vast changes in American culture and society. The Feminist Promise dramatically updates our understanding of feminism, taking the story through the age of Reagan and into the era of international feminist movements that have swept the globe."--Jacket
