Summary
"This collection of new essays examines the pervasive influence of religion upon the lives and strategies of late eighteenth and nineteenth century women activists. The book discusses a wide range of issues, including female education, women writers, missionary workers, female friendships and lesbian sexuality, and the authors demonstrate through detailed case-studies women's skilful negotiation of the boundaries between personal religious beliefs, moral attitudes and social action. Of particular significance is the challenge posed by this volume to existing historical categories of feminism."--Jacket
