English Laws for Women in the 19th CenturyeBook - 1982
This account of the author's experience at the hands of an imperfect state of law in early 19th-century England makes a passionate plea for equal justice for women. Largely as a result of this book the passage of the Married Women's Property Act and reform of the English Marriage and Divorce Laws occurred some years later.
