Men and the Making of Modern British Feminism
Stanford University Press

This chapter pays attention to men's endeavors to support women as they entered the professions, with a specific emphasis on the literary marketplace. The life stories of most late-eighteenth-century female authors are addressed. Joseph Johnson interacted with aspiring female authors. It was his financial and intellectual support of Mary Wollstonecraft that most distinguished him as a “champion of the fair sex.” The London-based bookseller William Lane intended on promoting women's fledgling careers. As with Johnson in the bookselling scene, William Enfield and Alexander Geddes were not alone in their enthusiasm for promoting women writers, although they were certainly the most consistently supportive. Others include William Taylor, Thomas Gisborne, Thomas Cooper, Erasmus Darwin, George Dyer, William Godwin, William Hayley, and Hugh Worthington.
