Infidel feminism is the first in-depth study of a distinctive brand of women’s rights that emerged out of the Victorian Secularist movement. It looks at the lives and work of a number of female activists, whose renunciation of religion shaped their struggle for emancipation. Anti-religious or secular ideas were fundamental to the development of feminist thought, but have, until now, been almost entirely passed over in the historiography of the Victorian and Edwardian women’s movement. In uncovering an important tradition of Freethinking feminism, this book reveals an ongoing radical and free love current connecting Owenite feminism with the more ‘respectable’ post-1850 women’s movement and the ‘New Women’ of the early twentieth century. This book will be invaluable to both scholars and students of social and cultural history and feminist thought, and to interdisciplinary studies of religion and secularisation, as well as those interested in the history of women’s movements more broadly.

Moving beyond the (now somewhat tired) debates about secularization as paradigm, theory, or master narrative, Periodizing Secularization focuses upon the empirical evidence for secularization, viewed in its descriptive sense as the waning social influence of religion, in Britain. Particular emphasis is attached to the two key performance indicators of religious allegiance and churchgoing, each subsuming several sub-indicators, between 1880 and 1945, including the first substantive account of secularization during the fin de siecle. A wide range of primary sources is deployed, many of them relatively or entirely unknown, and with due regard to their methodological and interpretative challenges. On the back of them, a cross-cutting statistical measure of 'active church adherence' is devised, which clearly shows how secularization has been a reality and a gradual, not revolutionary, process. The most likely causes of secularization were an incremental demise of a Sabbatarian culture (coupled with the associated emergence of new leisure opportunities and transport links) and of religious socialization (in the church, at home, and in the school). The analysis is also extended backwards, to include a summary of developments during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries; and laterally, to incorporate a preliminary evaluation of a six-dimensional model of 'diffusive religion', demonstrating that these alternative performance indicators have hitherto failed to prove that secularization has not occurred. The book is designed as a prequel to the author's previous volumes on the chronology of British secularization - Britain's Last Religious Revival? (2015) and Secularization in the Long 1960s (2017). Together, they offer a holistic picture of religious transformation in Britain during the key secularizing century of 1880-1980.

This groundbreaking book breaks with established canons and resists some of the stereotypes of feminist biblical studies. It features a wide range of contributors who showcase new methodological and theoretical movements such as feminist materialisms, intersectionality, postidentitarian 'nomadic' politics, gender archaeology, and lived religion, and theories of the human and the posthuman. The Bible and Feminism: Remapping the Field engages a range of social and political issues, including migration and xenophobia, divorce and family law, abortion, 'pinkwashing', the neoliberal university, the second amendment, AIDS and sexual trafficking, and the politics of 'the veil'. Foundational figures in feminist biblical studies work alongside new voices and contributors from a multitude of disciplines in conversations with the Bible that go well beyond the expected canon-within-the-canon assumed to be of interest to feminist biblical scholars. Moving beyond the limits of a text-orientated model of reading, this collection looks at how biblical texts were actualized in the lives of religious revolutionaries, such as Joanna Southcott or Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. It charts the politics of the Pauline veil in the self-understanding of Europe and reads the 'genealogical halls' in the book of Chronicles alongside acts of commemoration and forgetting in 9/11 and Tiananmen Square.

"Maurice I lamington has constructed a dynamic. historically informed theoretical framework to explore the relationship between feminism and hospitality. Its relevance to social issues. from houses of prostitution and bed and breakfast establishments to the devastation of (and recovery from) Hurricane Katrina, and the plight of new immigrants in the United States and Europe, includes a full range of social analyses from domestic to international hospitality. and will encourage further work on its topics."-Betty J. Harris, professor at the University of Oklahoma This collection beautifully demonstrates that the notion of hospitality is much richer than first meets the eye. Using gender as their jumping-off point. the contributors draw on a number of theoretical frameworks to explore hospitality in the home, in international contexts. in (or as) business, and in film and literature. Join them in this fascinating examination make yourself at home." Hilde Lindemann, professor at Michigan State University Feminism and Hospitality is an important text that illuminates how hospitality is defined and redefined in local and global contexts that necessarily intertwine public and private spheres. The range of topics, national location, and relationships considered truly make this a unique and provocative text. Hamington succeeds in powerfully making the case that hospitality deserves more attention in our complex and often inhospitable world."-Rebecca Ropers-Huilman, professor at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and editor of Feminist Formations Hospitality is something of a modern paradox. On the one hand, hospitality connotes a nicety or pleasantry easily undervalued as a ritual or formality devoid of epistemological or ethical content. On the other the rise in international conflict and violence, the decline of civil speech, and the increased hostility toward immigrants point to the dire need for hospitable responses to mitigate tensions. Hospitality represents a further paradox for feminism. Historically women have been saddled with disproportionate responsibility for hospitality and case also been treated as unwelcome guests in so many arenas. For these reasons, feminists have good reason to be wary of addressing hospitality. Yet, feminist theory has taken the lead on developing ontological, epistemological, and ethical approaches to connectedness and relationality such that addressing hospitality appears to be an appropriate extrapolation. Feminism and Hospitality: Gender in the Host/Guest Relationship is a collection that negotiates these intriguing paradoxes. Feminism and Hospitality is the first collection of original works to bring a feminist analysis to issues and theories of personal, political, economic, and artistic hospitality. Furthermore, because feminist theorists have brought so much attention to the nature of human relationships, this volume employs a fresh analysis beyond the tradition in political theory. Maurice Hamington is associate professor of women's studies and philosophy at Metropolitan state College of Denver

Freedom Feminism And The State

Many feminists have believed that government is the natural ally of the women’s movement. However, this book demonstrates that the opposite is true: government has long been a major oppressor of women and their rights. Feminism is not a new political force; its origins can be traced back to the abolitionist movement before the Civil War. Fighting to end slavery, women became conscious of their own legal disabilities. From these anti-statist roots, the women's movement eventually divided over such issues as sex, the family, and war. McElroy's book traces individualist feminism from those early roots until the present day. Her research demonstrates that in vital issues from sex and birth control to business and science, government has been the real obstacle in preventing women from achieving personal freedom and equal rights. This book discusses such controversies as individualism and socialism in the feminist tradition, economic freedom and the role of women, and the contemporary differences between mainstream and individualist feminism. Through McElroy’s work and those of a distinguished group of contributors, this book issues a ringing call for women to recapture their individualist heritage.

Based largely on research in popular journals, self-help manuals, newspaper accounts, and archival collections, American Feminism and the Birth of New Age Spirituality demonstrates that the New Age movement first flourished more than a century ago during the Gilded Age under the mantle of 'New Thought'. Tumber pays close attention to the ways in which feminism became grafted, with varying degrees of success, to emergent forms of liberal culture in the late nineteenth century, and questions the value of the new age movement--then and now--to the pursuit of women's rights and democratic renewal.

This book is a study of the relationship between that remarkable set of writers and painters known as the Bloomsbury Group, and the complex of new ideas in aesthetics, psychology, philosophy and literature which came to be called Modernism. Bloomsbury and Modernism is focused primarily upon the writings of E.M. Forster, Lytton Strachey and Virginia Woolf, but it makes reference throughout to the other members of the group as well as to the advanced notions which inspired their work.

Following on from Sources and Perspectives in the History of British Feminism , Controversies in the History of British Feminism is the third set of 6 volumes which looks at controversial aspects of the women's movement. Feminism has always been characterized by ideological dispute and conflict over strategy in the struggle for equality, and controversies have focused mainly on the means rather than the ends involved in the achievement of the movement's specific goals. On the issue of the fight for the vote the controversies were clearly visible. The conflicts within the women's suffrage movement eventually lead to the split between the suffragettes, who supported militancy, and those who opposed it. Not surprisingly, the historical record has been shaped by the political persuasions of a particular narrator. For example, the story of the Women's Social and Political Union told by Christabel Pankhurst in Unshackled in Volume 6 differs in points of emphasis from the version narrated by her sister, Sylvia Pankhurst in The Suffragette Movement . Christabel's militant feminism clashed with Sylvia's belief that equality would come about through social reform. More controversi still were those who were opposed entirely to women obtaining the vote. Many of these belonged to the Anti-Suffrage League. The inclusion of their writings in Volume 5 illustrated the extent of the opposition to the women's franchise.
