Infidel Feminism

Secularism, Religion and Women's Emancipation, England 1830-1914

Laura Schwartz

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides the first in-depth study of Freethinking feminism, thus recuperating a much-neglected and important intellectual dimension of nineteenth-century feminism - the presence of secular and/or anti-religious ideas
  • Makes an important and original contribution to the history of sexuality - identifying a longstanding and continuous feminist 'free love' tradition
  • Rethinks the religious/ secular divide as mutually constitutative rather than oppositional
  • Engages with contemporary feminist debates on secularism
