This book evaluates the nature and impact of organized female imperialism in Edwardian Britain. It analyzes the nature of aristocratic and upper-middle-class ladies' involvement in imperialist associations, examining their relationship with male imperialist leagues. The attitudes of well-known female promulgators of imperialism and their relationships with male counterparts are explored, and the central role of women in the educational causes of imperialism is outlined. This brings into focus the importance of women's imperialist movements in relation to the broader women's movement, while informing the study of the wider exercise of imperial power and the role of women within it.>
