These documents record the uneven progress made by women from the late seventeenth century up until the early decades of the twentieth century. They constitute the record of a struggle which has crossed partisan lines and straddled ideological differences yet whose participants have remained steadfast in the pursuit of a common goal: female emancipation. Throughout the centuries, radicals have shifted the main focus of their campaigns from advocating better educational opportunities for women to insisting upon their right to vote and the need for exercising greater control over their own reproduction and sexuality. Writings which have been compiled here include socialist manifestos, miscellaneous pamphlets, personal reminiscences, full-length biographies, histories of the various movements and impassioned treatises on the cause of women's rights by leading advocates such as Mary Astell, Barbara Bodichon and Emmeline Pankhurst.
