Rebel Crossings: New Women, Free Lovers and Radicals in Britain and the United States

by Sheila Rowbotham
£25.00   hardback  Verso Books (2016)

Rebel Crossings: New Women, Free Lovers and Radicals in Britain and the United States by Sheila Rowbotham Sheila Rowbotham's Rebel Crossings tells the transatlantic story of six radical pioneers at the turn of the twentieth century. Radicalised by the rise of socialism, Helena Born, Miriam Daniell, Gertrude Dix, Robert Nicol and William Bailie cross the Atlantic dreaming of liberty and equality. All six are part of a wider historical search for self-fulfillment and an alternative to a cruelly competitive capitalism.
 
Rebel Crossings offers fascinating perspectives on the historical interaction of feminism, socialism, and anarchism and on the incipient consciousness of a new sense of self, so vital for women seeking emancipation.
