A series of sensational articles on child prostitution appearing in the Pall Mall gazette in 1885 produced such universal outrage that the age of consent was soon raised from 13 to 16 by act of parliament. This is the starting point for this insightful examination of the ideas and activities of feminists around issues of sex and morality up to the end of World War I.

Review:

"Fascinating...Her work is a timely reminder that balancing social responsibility and individual rights in sexuality and maternity is far from being a new debate." --Sheila Rowbotham

"Rich, engrossing study of feminism." --Publishers Weekly

"Packed with historical details, this work captures the spirit and conflicts of feminist thought. A superb examination of early feminist politics." --Kirkus Reviews
