Criminals, idiots, women and minors : Victorian writing by women on women( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Pardon me; I must seem to you so stupid! Why is the property of the woman who commits Murder, and the property of woman who commits Matrimony, dealt with alike by your law?' so ends the 'little allegory' in conversational form with which Frances Power Cobbe opens the 1868 essay that gives this collection its title. Cobbe was a widely read essayist of remarkable lucidity and power; her pieces display incisive wit and remarkable focus as she returns repeatedly to 'the woman question, ' but it was typical of the time that when Cobbe died she was described in the Wellesley Index to Victorian periodicals as a 'miscellaneous writer." Cobbe was not alone; as much as fifteen percent of the essays in Victorian periodicals were by women, yet even the best of these pieces were allowed by the male-dominated world of scholarship to sink from view. Now, this anthology makes available again some of the best of Victorian writing by women - from Cobbe to Anna Jameson, Margaret Oliphant and Harriet Martineau."--Publisher's description
Frances Power Cobbe and Victorian feminism by Susan Hamilton( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frances Power Cobbe was a mid-Victorian feminist journalist and one of a handful of women to make a steady living writing for the nineteenth century established press. She was involved in the national women's suffrage campaign, argued for women's increased educational and employment opportunities, and was a vocal critic of marriage. Instrumental in the passage of the 1878 Matrimonial Causes Act, which made domestic violence grounds for legal separation, she also helped to write the 1876 Cruelty to Animals Act. She was one of the best-known feminist thinkers of her day. Despite her prodigious accomplishments, her writings have been neglected. Drawing on historical and literary approaches, this book examines the links between Victorian feminism and the established press, and insists on the importance of what it meant to have a Victorian feminist write for the established press."--Jacket

The second section concentrates on the strengths and successes of Victorian women as educators, and highlights some of the most influential women in the field of education during this era. Drawing widely on articles from the feminist and established press, government papers, newspapers, professional and association journals, as well as memoirs, addresses, pamphlets, and reviews, this essential collection gives researchers excellent and comprehensive access to nineteenth-century debates on improving girls and womens education, and womens work as educators"

The extension of women's political interactions in mature colonization projects : a case study from Bolivia by Susan Hamilton( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People who establish new settlements, either as pioneering agriculturalists or because they have been forcibly relocated, go through predictable stages of adjustment to the new environment. These typically include periods of recruitment, transition, development, and incorporation. The development stage of adjustment entails not only economic entrepreneurship but also the elaboration of increasingly complex, flexible political structures. Semi-directed or "guided" colonization schemes, such as the San Julian project in Bolivia, attempt to promote the development of social and political ties among colonists through establishing communal orientation programs and cooperatives, and organizing village governing bodies; these interventions may help settlers move into the development stage more quickly. However, women's opportunities for development political linkages may be reduced in settlement communities, in part because women may have little access to capital and income and because formal decision-making structures exclude them
