Mona Caird (1854 1932) was a British novelist and early radical
feminist social critic who insisted on maintaining her independence
after marrying. Her 1888 article 'Marriage', in which she
criticised marriage for limiting and subordinating women and called
for equality between partners, sparked a furious controversy, and
brought her widespread recognition. This volume, first published in
1897, contains a collection of Caird's feminist essays. She
analyses the indignities marriage caused for women, both
historically and contemporaneously, and advocates both equality in
marriage (including in domestic duties) and women's economic
independence. Caird also examines and criticises contemporary
ideals of motherhood, discussing legislation and changes in social
attitudes which would improve the lives of mothers. This volume
presents a detailed account of controversial late-Victorian radical
feminist views and criticisms. For more information on this author,
