Enterprising Women: The Garretts and their Circle

£43.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book tells the story of a group of women around the Garrett family, who in the second half of the nineteenth century and the early years of the twentieth changed the position of women in Britain. Pioneering access to education at all levels for women both in academic and vocational subjects as well as training for the professions - medicine, architectural decoration, landscape design - they also involved themselves in politics and the campaign for women's suffrage. In detail the work will be discussed of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (1836-1917), suffragist and the first woman physician, Millicent Garrett Fawcett (1847-1929), feminist, political activist and writer, and Emily Davies (1830-1921), feminist and suffragist and campaigner for women's right to university access. It also brings to the foreground the careers of some less well known members of the group, including Rhoda Garrett (1841-1882) and Agnes Garrett (1845-1935), the first women interior decorators, and Fanny Wilkinson (1855-1951), the first professional woman landscape gardener.

The front and back cover of the book is in very good condition with no scratches or wear. Within the book the pages are clean and clear with no missing pages or annotations.
