Hypatia, or Woman and Knowledge
NY, Dutton, (1925). In this book, "Mrs. Russell...sets forth the gospel of Feminism in its most militant and revolutionary form....She repudiates the idea that women's freedom is to lie only between scholastic knowledge imitating that of men and the conventional acceptance of wifehood and motherhood." Dora Russell was a social activist and progressive who championed women's rights, especially birth control and sexual freedom. She was the second wife of philosopher Bertrand Russell. Small insect hole to the front joint; a near fine copy in a very good dust jacket with only small chips at the corners and extremities. [#034913] $300
