Men and the Making of Modern British Feminism
Stanford University Press

This chapter reviews the men's paths for developing British feminism into the nineteenth century. Some of them abandoned feminism after the revolutionary moment had passed, while others still supported and worked for domestic reform. Men's specific contributions to the creation of modern British feminism lay in institution-building and networking. Some of the more ultraradical men in this late Enlightenment vanguard built powerful and innovative critiques of the legal and political systems, and supplied several recommendations directed at enhancing women's civil status. The continuities between “revolutionary” feminism and the feminisms that emerged in Britain in the ensuing decades become only more clear when individual “champions'” paths are considered into the nineteenth century. It is noted that the liberation of women would necessarily liberate men.
