This comprehensive study of women anti-slavery campaigners fills a serious gap in abolitionist history. Covering all stages of the campaign,Women Against Slaveryuses hitherto neglected sources to build up a vivid picture of the lives, words and actions of the women who were involved, and their distinctive contribution to the abolitionist movement. It looks at the way women's participation influenced the organisation, activities, policy and ideology of the campaign, and analyses the impact of female activism on women's own attitudes to their social roles, and their participation in public life. Exploring the vital role played by gender in shaping the movement as a whole, this book makes an important contribution to the debate on `race' and gender.

Editorial Reviews

"The scope of this careful and scholarly study makes it very useful for expanding the inclusion of women and social history in nineteenth-century world history."-"Journal of World History, Fall 1997 "Thoroughly researched and impressively argued, this book contributes a great deal to our understanding of the gendered and dichotomous nature of British abolitionism. Midgley has provided nineteenth century scholars with a thought provoking study which deserves an audience beyond those specialists for whom it will be essential reading."-"The Victorian Review
