Abstract

ABSTRACT:

Rationalizing women's participation in public and political spheres, Sarah Grand sublimates Germaine de Staël's legacy of woman genius and improvisation in her narratives of New Woman, expanding the tradition to apply to gender and class egalitarian politics. The women characters foreshadowed one of the suffragists' and suffragettes' most powerful tools against the patriarchy: the force of their own passionate voices, raised in the public sphere and driven to eloquence by "the cause."
