About this book

This new book asks a key question- what did it mean to have a Victorian feminist write for an established newspaper or periodical? Using the example of Frances Power Cobbe, it focuses on Victorian feminism and its political workings, and urges us to reconsider what feminism looked like in the nineteenth-century.

Reviews

"Hamilton's is a highly readable, focused monograph that illuminats the history and metahistory of feminism, the active presence (rather than lurking marginality) of feminist discourse in the mainstream press, and Cobbe's verve, skill, and power as a writer." - Linda K. Hughes, Texas Christian University
