Abstract

Infidel Feminism focuses on a distinctive brand of women’s rights that emerged out of the Victorian Secularist movement. It looks at the lives and work of a number of female activists, whose renunciation of religion shaped their struggle for emancipation. Laura Schwartz’s work adds richly to the scholarship on religious cultures and counter-currents in the 19th century, writes Sneha Krishnan.
