Histories of Some of the Penitents in the Magdalen House by Jennie Batchelor

Book Description

First published in 1759, this novel aims to promote the cause of the Magdalen House, a charity which sought to rehabilitate prostitutes by fitting them for a life of virtuous industry. It challenges long-standing prejudices against prostitutes by presenting them as victims of inadequate education, male libertinism and sexual double standards.

Women's Theatrical Memoirs by Jennie Batchelor Women's Theatrical Memoirs, Hardback (January 2008)

By the close of the eighteenth century, the theatrical memoir had become a popular and established genre. This ten-volume facsimile collection presents the lives of some of the most celebrated actresses of their day. These memoirs also provide insights into contemporary constructions of gender, sexuality and fame.

Women and Material Culture, 1660-1830 by Jennie Batchelor Women and Material Culture, 1660-1830, Hardback (June 2007)

This book comprises twelve illustrated, interdisciplinary essays on gender and material culture across the eighteenth century.
