Introducing The Subjection of Women

John Stuart Mill Introducing The Subjection of Women Harriet Taylor

It’s the first of February, which means that my turn to host the discussion over at the Year of Feminist Classics blog has come (eep!). This month we’re reading “The Subjection of Women” by John Stuart Mill and Harriet Taylor Mill, and my introductory post has just gone up. There’s a list of resources at the end that I hope will be useful for readers, including a link to the full text of the essay online.

Don’t forget that you don’t need to have signed up for the twelve months of the project to join in at any time! If you want to read only one of our selections, that’s perfectly fine. So yes, this is my shameless way of pleading with you all to come discuss Mill and Taylor with me.

  3. Thanks for reminding me I wanted to participate in this! I downloaded The Subjection of Women last month in preparation. How'd it get to be February already?

  4. I didn't even know that it was co-authored, I thought John Stuart Mill had written it by himself. This is very intriguing, will pop over to your post. I just wish I could manage to fully participate but that'll have to wait until my papers are done.
