Editorial Reviews

Review

"For anyone studying the fight by women for equality, this is a most important work, not least because it adds to the increasingly emerging evidence that women have been fighting for a fairer position since well before the nineteenth century." The Book Exchange "This unique collection of documents will be a boon to teachers of history and to scholars of the French Revolution... Recommended." Library Journal

Format: Paperback
Notes and commentary by Darlene Gay Levy, Harriet Branson Applewhite, Mary Durham Johnson. Almost 200 years ago, the women of revolutionary Paris were demanding legal equality in marriage; educational opportunities for girls, including vocational training; public instruction, licensing, and support for midwives; guarantees for women's rights to employment; and an end to the exclusion of women from certain professions. The editors have uncovered, translated, and annotated sixty documents which shed light on these and other socioeconomic struggles by women and the impact on the French Revolutionary era. This work makes a significant contribution to the growing appreciation of the role of women in history, politics, ideology, and social change. "This unique collection of documents will be a boon to teachers in history and his scholars of the French Revolution... Recommended." - Library Journal. "For anyone studying the fight by women for equality, this is a most important work, not least because it adds to the increasing emerging evidence that women have been fighting for a fair position since well before the 19th century." - The Book Exchange. "Three women scholars... provide some profound and interesting commentary. The documents are fascinating and often quite touching." - Newark star ledger.
