Krimmer, Elisabeth


Krimmer, Elisabeth. In the Company of Men: Cross-Dressed Women Around 1800. The figure of the cross-dressed woman proliferated in plays, novels, popular tales, and real-life events in 18th century Germany. Krimmer examines this phenomenon in terms of the questioning of roles that arose after the revolutionary period, and also in terms of women's resistance to the new paradigm of women's inferiority as founded in her body.
