By comparing fictional representations with "real" New Women in late-Victorian Britain, Sally Ledger makes a major contribution to an understanding of the "Woman Question" at the end of the century. Chapters on imperialism, socialism, sexual decadence, and metropolitan life situate the "revolting daughters" of the Victorian age in a broader cultural context than previous studies.

In the years between the world wars, Manhattan's Fourteenth Street-Union Square district became a center for commercial, cultural, and political activities, and hence a sensitive barometer of the dramatic social changes of the period. It was here that four urban realist painters--Kenneth Hayes Miller, Reginald Marsh, Raphael Soyer, and Isabel Bishop--placed their images of modern "new women." Bargain stores, cheap movie theaters, pinball arcades, and radical political organizations were the backdrop for the women shoppers, office and store workers, and consumers of mass culture portrayed by these artists. Ellen Wiley Todd deftly interprets the painters' complex images as they were refracted through the gender ideology of the period. This is a work of skillful interdisciplinary scholarship, combining recent insights from feminist art history, gender studies, and social and cultural theory. Drawing on a range of visual and verbal representations as well as biographical and critical texts, Todd balances the historical context surrounding the painters with nuanced analyses of how each artist's image of womanhood contributed to the continual redefining of the "new woman's" relationships to men, family, work, feminism, and sexuality.

Qasim Amin (1863-1908), an Egyptian lawyer, is best known for his advocacy of women's emancipation in Egypt, through a number of works including The Liberation of Women and The New Woman. In the first of these important books in 1899, he started from the premise that the liberation of women was an essential prerequisite for the liberation of Egyptian society from foreign domination, and used arguments based on Islam to call for an improvement in the status of women. In doing so, he promoted the debate on women in Egypt from a side issue to a major national concern, but he also subjected himself to severe criticism from the khedival palace, as well as from religious leaders, journalists, and writers. In response he wrote The New Woman, published in 1900, in which he defended his position and took some of his ideas further. In The New Woman, Amin relies less on arguments based on the Quran and Sayings of the Prophet, and more openly espouses a Western model of development. Although published a century ago, these two books continue to be a source of controversy and debate in the Arab world and remain key works for understanding the Arab feminist movement. The Liberation of Women and The New Woman appear here in English translation for the first time in one volume.

"Alice Freeman Palmer (1855-1902) was one of the most influential figures in expanding academic horizons for women in the United States during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. But her importance extends beyond her role in higher education. As a woman who chose both marriage and a professional career, she confronted obstacles that challenged the new path she and other women were forging, earning herself the title "New Woman."" "In this first biography of Palmer, Ruth Bordin draws from a variety of rich and hitherto untapped sources, thoroughly illuminating not only Palmer's extraordinary life, but also a fundamental period of transition in the history of educated, middle-class women during the turn of the century." "Palmer blazed trails traditionally unavailable to women. She graduated from the University of Michigan, the first major coeducational university, and became president of Wellesley College before the age of thirty. Following that tenure, Palmer temporarily held volunteer positions, influencing women's education as a trustee of Wellesley College, an adviser to Radcliffe, Barnard, and Pembroke, and a popular lecturer on women and higher education." "She formally returned to academia in the early 1890s with her appointment as the first dean of the newly founded University of Chicago, and continued her struggle to ensure women's acceptance in education as students, faculty, and staff." "Bordin's biography of Palmer not only provides a compelling story of this unique woman's life, but vividly illustrates early attempts to solve problems that have occupied women down to the present day."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
