Abstract:

Spanning the period between the English Civil War in the 1640s through to the dawn of the American Revolutionary period, this work on gender identity and politics explores the development of the private sphere as an external and internalized tool that removed women from public political discourse. The work examines contemporary popular media as a polarizing force that drove women from a relatively egalitarian footing in political intellectual life to a new role indoors that would prevail in the external discourse and internal dialogues of the nation for centuries to come. Norton is a professor of history at Cornell University.
