The Women of Grub Street: Press, Politics, and Gender in the London Literary Marketplace 1678-1730 written by Paula McDowell

 

The Women of Grub Street: Press, Politics, and Gender in the London Literary Marketplace 1678-1730 written by Paula McDowell

Overview:


Original both in its sources and in the claims it makes for the nature, extent, and complexities of women's participation in print culture and public politics, this book provides a wealth of new information about middle- and lower-class women's political and literary lives, and shows that these women were not merely the passive distributors of other people's political ideas. Quite to the contrary, women of the widest possible variety of socioeconomic backgrounds and religio-political allegiances played so prominent a role in the production and transmission of political ideas through print as to belie simultaneous powerful claims that women had no place in public life.
