Hidden and Visible Suffrage

Emancipation and the Edwardian Woman in Galsworthy, Wells and Forster

Anne Holden Ronning

This book focuses on the cultural background of the Edwardian woman as depicted by Galsworthy, Wells and Forster. In the light of the content of contemporary women's magazines and newspapers, as well as other suffrage material published round the turn of the century it aims at exposing the hidden and visible suffrage in these texts. It contributes to an understanding of the role women played in literature written by male authors who were in favour of and supported women's rights, and questions the apparent disparity between the non-fiction and fiction writing of these authors.
Contents: Galsworthy - Wells - Forster: emancipation: women: suffrage: women's magazines and newspapers.
