Synopsis

A series of sensational articles on child prostitution appearing in the Pall Mall gazette in 1885 produced such universal outrage that the age of consent was soon raised from 13 to 16 by act of parliament. This is the starting point for this insightful examination of the ideas and activities of feminists around issues of sex and morality up to the end of World War I.

Lucy Bland is Reader in History at London Metropolitan University. Her publications include Sexology in Culture: Labelling Bodies and Desires and Sexology Uncensored: the Documents of Sexual Science (both with Laura Doan).
