The book shows how the expansion of economic opportunities for women and the drop in the birth rate further exacerbated the debates over their status, roles, and possibilities. With the onset of the First World War, these debates were temporarily placed on hold but they would revive by 1916 and gain momentum during France’s postwar recovery.

Barbara Taylor entitles her new book Mary Wollstonecraft and the Feminist Imagination. The imagination in question is Wollstonecraft’s, but, like Wollstone-craft, Taylor is interested in the imagination more generally, both the problems that the imagination gets women into and the ways in which the feminist imagination can get women out of those problems and help them imagine a more just and equitable future. Ruth H. Bloch’s aim in Gender and Morality in Anglo-American Culture, 1650–1800, the newly published collection of her essays, is somewhat more modest

by her collected letters and Barbara Taylor's study, Mary Wollstonecraft and the Feminist Imagination

Judith Hawley finds Mary Wollstonecraft's reputation enhanced by her collected letters and Barbara Taylor's study, Mary Wollstonecraft and the Feminist Imagination. Morally and politically contradictory, Britain's first feminist rejected a proposal of marriage because she could not think of "prostituting my person for a maintenance", but when she fell in love, as she did several times, she found herself totally dependent emotionally on her lovers. When she married Godwin - against their principled opposition to marriage, but for the sake of their unborn child - she even joked about displaying "a true wifish submission".

Mary Wollstonecraft and the Feminist Imagination. Cambridge and New York: Cambridge University Press, 2003. The Making of Feminist Heroines. The extraordinary power of Barbara Taylor's Mary Wollstonecraft and the Feminist Imagination lies in its willingness to address unflinchingly this tension in Wollstonecraft scholarship, and to do so by embracing the paradoxes in Wollstonecraft's work and reception.

In the two centuries since Mary Wollstonecraft published A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), she has become western feminism's leading icon, a stature that has obscured her actual historic significance. Examining in detail Wollstonecraft's writings, Barbara Taylor provides an alternative reading of her as a writer steeped in the utopianism of Britain's radical Enlightenment. Her feminist principles are shown to have arisen within a revolutionary program for universal equality and moral perfection that reached its zenith during the political upheavals of the 1790s but had its roots in the radical-Protestant Enlightenment. Locating Wollstonecraft within her literary and political milieus, and tracing the relationship between her feminist radicalism and her troubled personal history, the book draws a compelling portrait of this fascinating and profoundly influential thinker. Barbara Taylor, a reader in History in the Department of Cultural Studies at the University of East London, is an intellectual and cultural historian specializing in the history of feminism from 1750-1850. Her first book, Eve and the New Jerusalem: Socialism and Feminism in the Nineteenth Century (Pantheon, 1983) is a study of the feminist dimension of British Utopian Socialism. It was published to widespread acclaim and she has been awarded many research grants, including fellowships from the Leverhulme Trust, the Nuffield Foundation, the British Academy and the Guggenheim Foundation.
