About this product
- DescriptionThe nineteenth century, a time of far-reaching cultural, political, and socio-ecomic transformation in Europe, brought about fundamental changes in the role of women. Women achieved this by fighting for their rights in the legal, ecomic, and political spheres. In the various parts of Europe, this process went forward at a different pace and followed different patterns. Most historical research up to w has igred this diversity, preferring to focus on women's emancipation movements in major western European countries such as Britain and France. The present volume provides a broader context to the movement by including countries both large and small from all regions of Europe. Fourteen historians, all of them specialists in women's history, examine the origins and development of women's emancipation movements in their respective areas of expertise. By exploring the cultural and political diversity of nineteenth-century Europe and at the same time pointing out connections to questions explored by conventional scholarship, the essays shed new light on common developments and problems.
