First published by Routledge Kegan & Paul 1986-1991, this new reprint collection makes available once again the most important primary sources from the Fawcett library in an accessible resource.

The pamphlets and papers gathered here illustrate major debates on a range of issues including suffrage, education, work, science, and medicine. Each volume contains an historical introduction to the material, and biographical details of those campaigners who sought to improve the social, economic, and legal status of women.


`The publishers of the Women's Source Library… can only be applauded in their efforts to make these materials more generally available, and the series should be on the shelves of every serious library.' - Times Higher Education Supplement
