Working Girls

Fiction, Sexuality, and Modernity

Katherine Mullin

  • Changes scholarly understanding of late-nineteenth century sexual politics
  • Alters perceptions of the gender of Modernism
  • Erodes boundaries between the late-Victorian and the Modernist, and high and low culture
  • Offers fresh insights into how authors represented unease about the act of writing and publishing
  • Indicates how twenty-first century understandings of "postfeminism" have a long back-story dating back to the 1880s
