Outspoken Women by Lesley A. Hall

Book Description

Studying a broader period than its contemporaries, this comprehensive study reveals a neglected tradition of British women's writing from the Victorian era to the sexual revolution of the 1960s. Outspoken Women brings together the many and varied non-fictional writings of British women on sexual attitudes and behaviour, beginning nearly a hundred years prior to the 'second wave' of feminism. Commentators cover a broad range of perspectives and include Darwinists, sexologists, and campaigners against the spread of VD, as well as women writing about their own lives and experiences. Covering all aspects of the debate from marriage, female desire and pleasure, to lesbianism, prostitution, STDs, and sexual ignorance, Lesley A. Hall studies how the works of this era didn't just criticise male-defined mores and the 'dark side' of sex, but how they increasingly promoted the possibility of a brighter view and an informed understanding of the sexual life. Hall's remarkable anthology is an engaging examination of this fascinating subject and it provides students and scholars with an invaluable source of primary material.

Sex, Gender and Social Change in Britain Since 1880 by Lesley A. Hall Sex, Gender and Social Change in Britain Since 1880, Hardback (November 2012)

Though sexual attitudes and behaviour have changed radically in Britain since the mid-nineteenth century, Lesley A. Hall shows how halting these processes of change have been. The second edition of this classic text has been revised and expanded, bringing the story right up to the present day and incorporating the latest research and scholarship.

Life and Times of Stella Browne by Lesley A. Hall Life and Times of Stella Browne, Hardback (January 2011)

Presents an account of radical reformer Stella Browne, whose life, ideas and activities overturn various assumptions about early 20th-century politics and feminism. This book explores Browne's life and times, from her upbringing in Nova Scotia into her political apprenticeship and life from militant suffragism in the early 1900s.
