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.
