📙 Women Against Slavery: The British Campaigns, 1780-1870 by Clare Midgley — download pdf


Women Against Slavery uses neglected sources to build a vivid picture of the lives, words and actions of the women who were involved in the British abolitionist movement. It looks at the way women's participation influenced the organization, activities, policy and ideology of the campaign, and analyzes the impact of female activism on women's own attitudes regarding their social roles, and their participation in public life. Exploring the vital role played by gender in shaping the movement as a whole, this account makes an important contribution to the debate on gender and race.
