This book explores men's late-eighteenth-century role in the making of modern British feminism. It identifies who the main male feminist interlocutors were and how they were connected, as well as what positions they adopted and why they adopted them, and also confirms that the connection between sex and feminism needs to be denaturalized. The chapters in the book focus on questions of process, mapping how certain men took on particular women's rights issues. They also address the central debates and divisions that emerged in the course of these feminist conversations, highlighting several instances of the challenges that men (as well as women) encountered in trying to think their way out of patriarchy. Finally, an overview of the chapters included in the book is given.
