"Josephine Elizabeth Butler (1828-1906) was a prominent English feminist who was best known for her controversial campaigns concerning the welfare and civil rights of prostitutes. In 1869 she became the leader of the campaign to limit the extension of the Contagious Diseases Acts. These Acts aimed to control the spread of venereal diseases in the armed forces through mandatory internal examinations and imprisonment for those accused of prostitution. Butler's campaign was instrumental in having the Acts repealed in 1886. This volume, first published anonymously in 1871, explores the legal ramifications of the Acts from a constitutional and feminist viewpoint. Butler denounces the Acts for denying accused women their civil rights, and discusses how repeal, together with universal suffrage and constitutional reform, would prevent this situation from recurring. Butler was one of the first feminists to frame her arguments explicitly through female experiences and this volume illustrates her approach." -- From back cover

Sex, gender, and religion : Josephine Butler revisited by Josephine Elizabeth Grey Butler( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Josephine Butler, 1828-1906 spearheaded campaigns against state regulation of prostitution. A gifted platform speaker, she enthused a variety of British and European audiences, and wrote abundantly about her cause. Contributors revisit Butler after the end of the twentieth century, where she has been fêted, forgotten, and then rediscovered as reformer, mystic, and feminist. Firmly locating Butler within her context, the book breaks new ground by focusing on the role of religion in her life and work, and on Butler as (auto)biographer, writing her own self as she writes her campaign
