Rogers, Katharine M.
With a strong opening chapter called "The Situation of Women in Eighteenth-Century England" Rogers sets the historical and social background before exploring how the larger movements of rationalism, sentimentalism, and radicalism supported some moderate progress in liberating women during this period.
