Abstract:

"Volume 8: Florence Nightingale on Women, Medicine, Midwifery and Prostitution makes available a great range of Florence Nightingale's work on women: her pioneering study of maternal mortality post childbirth, her opposition to the regulation of prostitution through the Contagious Diseases Acts, her views on gender roles, marriage and income security for women and excerpts from her draft (abandoned) novel. There is correspondence with women friends and colleagues from childhood to old age, on a vast range of subjects. Most of this material has not been published before, and some letters will be new even to Nightingale scholars. Altogether, a very different view of Nightingale emerges from what normally appears in biographies and other secondary sources. This material will enable a new assessment of her feminism, her relations with women and her contribution to improving the status of women of her time. It will be of interest to a broad range of historians, social scientists and public health experts."--Jacket.
