Event description

Description

Sheila Rowbotham helped start the women’s liberation movement in Britain and is known internationally as an historian of feminism and radical social movements. She is the author of the ground-breaking books Women, Resistance and Revolution; Woman’s Consciousness, Man’s World; and Hidden from History.

Curiosity aroused by a book in the British Library during the 1970s led Rowbotham to trace the interweaving lives of six women and men. Rebel Crossings: Transatlantic Feminism, Free Love, and Radicalism is the resulting group biography, set in the late-nineteenth century when liberalism, feminism, socialism, and anarchism intermingled with alternative approaches to dress, health and sex. Rebel Crossings offers fascinating perspectives on the historical interaction of these trends and the effect on women seeking emancipation.
