Summary
"Banishing the Beast brings to life the private and public debates, campaigns and struggles among feminists to construct a new morality based on an increasing understanding of equality between the sexes." "For many concerned men and women involved in sexual politics at the turn of the century, sexual lustfulness - the beast within - was the subject of serious and energetic debate. Lucy Bland details how, then as now, thought and action around sexual politics focused on this and the key areas of marriage, prostitution, birth control and sex. Sex education and marital reform were also seen by feminists as essential, but other areas of discussion such as free love and whether or not women experience sexual pleasure remained highly controversial. This is a fascinating and revealing book, peopled by women and men who, under conditions not of their own making, nevertheless made history."--BOOK JACKET
