Encounters in the Westminster Review
A series of important encounters on the subject of marriage and divorce, the position of women and relationships between the sexes took place in the pages of the Westminster Review (WR) between 1885 and 1891. These exchanges in the Westminster were crucially underpinned and influenced by the dialogues that occurred simultaneously outside the pages of the review among a close circle of Westminster contributors. Both sets of discourses shaped the different positions taken by the protagonists, influenced what would be published in the Westminster and made a major contribution to the debate nationwide. The history of this debate and the various confrontations which carried it forward are the subjects of this study.
