About this product
- DescriptionThis major new history of European women's professional activities and organizational roles during the 'long' nineteenth century examines what women could and could t do if they sought activity, purpose, or recognition beyond their own homes. Linda L. Clark surveys women's achievements in literature, art, music, theater, charity, education, medicine, law, and public administration, and examines the relationship between women's professional and philanthropic activity and the rise of feminist organizations. She shows that, despite continuing legal, cultural, and familial obstacles, thousands of ambitious women pursued professional activities for reasons that often combined ecomic need with aspirations to do meaningful work and gain public recognition. Detailing women's accomplishments from England to Russia, this unique survey enables readers to connect individual life stories with larger political, social, and ecomic contexts between 1789 and 1914 and is essential reading for students of modern European history, women's history, and gender studies.
