Summary
"This book is a first attempt to bring together what is known about liberal feminist and socialist movements for the emancipation of women all over the world in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The author deals not only with Britain and the United States, but also with Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Russia, Austria-Hungary and the Scandinavian countries. His intention is to trace the origins, development and eventual collapse of these movements in relation to the changing social formations and political structures of Europe, America and Australasia in the era of bourgeois liberalism. The first part of the book discusses the origins of feminist movements and advances a model or "idea type" description of their development. The second part then takes a number of case studies of individual feminist movements to illustrate the main varieties of organised feminism and the differences in its structure and evolution from country to country. The third part of the book deals in a similar way to parts one and two with socialist women's movements and includes a study of the Socialist Women's International. A fourth and final part discusses in a general way the reason for the eclipse of women's emancipation movements in the half-century following the end of the First World War. There is a brief appendix on international feminist organisations. A short note on further reading concludes the book."--Jacket
