Description - Women, Gender and Enlightenment by Barbara Taylor

Did women have an Enlightenment? Historians have long excluded women from the Enlightenment orbit. But competing images of 'Woman' loomed large in Enlightenment thought, and women themselves - as scientists and salonnieres, bluestockings and governesses, political polemicists and novelists - contributed much to enlightened intellectual culture. This path-breaking volume of interdisciplinary essays by forty leading scholars provides a detailed picture of the controversial, innovative role played by women and gender issues in the age of light.
