Excerpt from Thirteen Years of a Busy Woman's Life My father's life had helped many men who had never seen or met him. Well if I, a woman, could in some lesser manner help some lone, struggling women who, like myself, after being reared in wealth, suddenly found themselves forced to toil for those little luxuries which to a refined woman are verily the necessaries of life, I too might be Of use. The Society bride who went to Ascot on a drag; to Rane lagh, Hurlingham, or Sandown in her husband's buggy, or drove her own Park phaeton and pair; the pampered, spoilt well-dressed young wife, who only lived for a good time, at one fell swoop lost all. A hard school - more kicks than halfpence - and yet now it is passed one is almost thankful for the experience, thankful for each link in the chain so Often welded with fire and tears. Two things made life possible - ambition for one's chil dren and the kindly hand of friendship - two most precious pearls in the diadem of life. These, and'a mother's devotion and encouragement. That hard time of Egyptian slavery is over my thirteen years' task is ended. The widow's cruse may run low, but need not be empty if she has health and courage to work yes, work, work, and still keep on working. Only let me deplore the unfortunate circumstances that allow the possibilities of widows and children left to battle with the world, without sufficient means for a home and education after being born in luxury. I won't attempt to write my memoirs, but just jot down a few Odds and ends before they slip my memory. Memory is an excellent institution, and Often assertive until one begins to write. Then nasty little doubts have a way of creeping in, doubts about dates, spelling of names, the actual perpetrator of a certain cute act, or the inception of a particular thought. Each year fills memory's slate more full, and the Older markings become gradually obliterated as new pencillings take their place.

Women, Literature and Finance in Victorian Britain: Cultures of Investment defines the cultures that emerged in response to the democratization of the stock market in nineteenth-century Britain when investing provided access to financial independence for women. Victorian novels represent those economic networks in realistic detail and are preoccupied with the intertwined economic and affective lives of characters. Analyzing evidence about the lives of real investors together with fictional examples, including case studies of four authors who were also investors, Nancy Henry argues that investing was not just something women did in Victorian Britain; it was a distinctly modern way of thinking about independence, risk, global communities and the future in general.

The 1910-1911 Encyclopedia Britannica was advertised as the high water mark of human knowledge. That 34 of the 1,500 contributors were women was widely perceived as signaling a significant breakthrough into the world of learning. The book examines public and private aspects of the women contributors' lives and includes short biographies. ...delightful...a marvelous encapsulation of a turning point in society and scholarship. Well-written and engaging from start to finish, this work would be a fine addition to already strong women's studies collections. --CHOICE

Kanner (UCLA Center for the Study of Women) considers this a bibliomethodology, with each of the approximately 800 entries consisting of: the author's biographical data, information on the author from her autobiography, content analysis of the autobiography, and the author's place in a sociohistorical context. Commencing in the 1700s with Quaker preacher Elizabeth Ashbridge and Charlotte Clarke, actress, playwright, novelist, and cross-dresser, the tour concludes with 20th century activist Mary Whitehouse. Helpful tools include: an introduction on feminist response to literary theory and forces shaping women's self-narrative, Author Index of Twenty-Year Cohorts, Identification Index (of the authors' self-assigned designations), and Guide to Abbreviations and Terminology.
