The Women's Movements in the United States and Britain from the 1790s to the 1920s Paperback / softback
This book presents a study of the development of the feminist movement in Britain and America during the 19th century.
Acknowledging the similar social conditions in both countries during that period, the author suggests that a real sense of distinctiveness did exist between British and American feminists.
American feminists were inspired by their own perception of the superiority of their social circumstances, for example, whereas British feminists found their cause complicated by traditional considerations of class.
Christine Bolt aims to show that the story of the American and British women's movement is one of national distinctiveness within an international cause.
This book should be of interest to students and teachers of American and British political history and women's studies.
