Spinster and Her Enemies by Sheila Jeffreys

Book Description

The much-awaited re-release of this classic feminist text. With a revised and updated introduction, Sheila Jeffreys examines the activities of feminist campaigners around such issues as child abuse and prostitution and how these campaigns shaped social purity in the 1880s and 1890s. She demonstrates how the thriving and militant feminism of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was undermined, and asserts that the decline of this feminism was due largely to the promotion of a sexual ideology which was hostile to women's independence. This is an important book on a watershed period in the history of sexuality.

Books By Author Sheila Jeffreys

Gender Hurts by Sheila Jeffreys Gender Hurts, Hardback (August 2012)

'Gender Hurts' examines the wider social and political context and implications of the phenomenon of transgenderism. Jeffreys and Gottschalk propose that gender in western culture is socially constructed as the basis of male domination and that the concept of gender has the potential to hurt many.

Industrial Vagina by Sheila Jeffreys Industrial Vagina, Hardback (November 2008)

Examines how prostitution and other aspects of the sex industry have moved from being small-scale, clandestine, and socially despised practices to become very profitable legitimate market sectors that are being legalised and decriminalised by governments.
