The Making of Modern Woman: Europe, 1789-1918

Front Cover
New York, 2002 - History - 382 pages
Nineteenth-century Europe was forged through revolution, nationalism, imperial expansion, labor protests and war. But the making of modern Europe was also the making of modern woman. This exciting new history thrusts women onto the center stage. The Making of Modern Woman challenges the image of nineteenth-century Europe as 'man-made'. It is enriched with accounts of individual women and their experiences of war, work, love and politics and provides a comparative approach, offering the diversity of women's experience across the whole continent from Ireland to Iceland and Russia to Greece. The author is inclusive, examining woman as mother, wife, lover, revolutionary, colonizer, worker and feminist providing the most comprehensive text to date on women in nineteenth-century Europe. For readers interested in European history and Women's history.
