Product Information

Infernos and Paradises: The Triumph of Capitalism in the 19th Century

"Infernos and Paradises is the third installment in Marilyn French's eminently readable—and revolutionary—four-volume history of women, the fruit of over twenty years of research on women's lives in societies through the ages. Covering a period of particular hope and change for women and the world, this volume focuses on the United States, Britain, and countries in Africa. French illuminates the conflict between intensifying forces of imperialism, industralisation, and capitalism versus intrepid efforts to organise for more equitable wages, access to education, and the vote. The success of capitalism, French argues, depended upon the exploitation of women; but working among female peers, rather than in the isolation of the home, allowed women to organise on a large scale and ultimately achieve emancipation."

Marilyn French. The Feminist Press, 2008. Foreword by Margaret Atwood.
