    schema:description "Examines the many different ways in which women achieved public standing and exercised political power in England from the middle of the eighteenth century to the present. This book shows how rank, property, and inheritance could confer de facto power on privileged women, and how across the centuries the arrogance of birth and title empowered aristocratic women to overawe enfranchised men of lower social standing. Many of the essays are inspired by a related effort to reintegrate radical female activists within their political milieu. The contributors explore the limits and possibilities of women's citizenship both before and after winning the right to vote. Together, the essays tell a continuous and complex story, redefining political activity and reassessing the turning points of British political history."@en ;
