Paletschek and Pietrow-Enneker put together a collection of essays that shed light on common problems for nineteenth century feminists in cultural, political and socioeconomic spheres in Europe. The essays explain how women in major western European countries like Britain, France and Germany progressed their feminist movements at different paces and in different ways.
This book is different from others on feminist movements because it does not just focus on these major countries but focuses on a broader context of the movement including smaller scale countries like Hungary. It is a lesser known book because of its age, but still includes important information on nineteenth century feminism. Robertson describes a time of political unrest for women trying to fight for their right to vote while maintaining their households and raising their children. Despite this, Taylor does a good job of covering all the topics pertaining to feminist England.
She describes events using newspaper articles and quotes from prominent feminists of the time. Taylor focuses on people more so than events and the movement itself, however. She often introduces a significant person, like Mary Wollstonecraft or Anna Wheeler, and explains their roll in certain English feminist movements.
Taylor weaves information on socialist feminism in throughout the novel by explaining why socialism and feminism were so closely linked. Mary Wollstonecraft. Wollstonecraft was one of the most prominent feminists in the late eighteenth century into the early nineteenth century. She fought for change on all feminist fronts: political, social and cultural.

His work The Theory of the Four Movements explains the roots utopian socialism including the feminist ideas that go along with it. These utopian themes are further analyzed in Leslie F. Josephine Butler. As a feminist, Butler was primarily concerned about the welfare of prostitutes. Several prominent French philosophes could also be considered feminists because their ideas of equality and universal suffrage overlapped with the same ideas feminists had.
Below is a list of convincing academic articles that explain further why major philosophes of the eighteenth century and beyond were also sometimes feminists, and how their ideas influenced the feminists after them.

Martin Pugh is a political historian with a particular interest in the 20th century women's movement in Britain — which makes him unusual: most historians of the women's movement and feminism are social historians. In my reading, however, this is not an imbalance, and Martin Pugh is a political historian with a particular interest in the 20th century women's movement in Britain — which makes him unusual: most historians of the women's movement and feminism are social historians.
In my reading, however, this is not an imbalance, and neither is it a misrepresentation of the 20th century women's movement. Popular and many activist understandings of feminism and feminist politics seem to see the period from the granting of the vote to the resurgence of feminist activism in the late s as a barren period, devoid of political activity, and characterised by anti-feminst back-to-the-home practices, with WW2 as a liberatory blip.
Pugh's work, and other histories, shows that to be a serious misreading of 20th century Britain so that he is able to fill in many gaps. In concentrating on political history, well contextualised in social developments and attitudes, Pugh has enriched our historical understanding, and provided both activists and scholars with a sound basis to re-evaluate our understandings. I would, however, have liked to have seen a more explicit outline of the specific places of revisionism — references to other scholars' analyses are in some cases circumspect, which doesn't help us as readers to grasp the full subtlety of his case.
