Major Works - History of Feminism Series

Routledge Major Works are multi-volume collections ranging from 4-6 volume sets, with a focus on a particular concept, theme, or individual. Essentially 'mini-libraries', these collections gather material from various sources allowing users to gain access to pre published material that is inaccessible, not widely available or is scattered throughout a variety of specialist books and journals.

The following titles are all published under our Major Works History of Feminism Series. They investigate a diverse range of topics allied to the study of feminism, with titles ranging from Women and Cross-Dressing, 1800-1939; Women's Travel Writing, 1750-1850; and Women and Belief, 1852-1928.
