This book discusses the contribution of individual men to the emancipation of women between 1860 and 1920. These include the pioneer of feminism, J.S. Mill, the allies of Josephine Butler, the men who risked imprisonment for making available information on contraception and sympathetic writers such as Meredith and Shaw. There are also chapters on the suffrage, education, religion, medicine and entry to other professions. The role of men in the removal of women's social disabilities is described as well as Gandhi's innovative involvement of women in the independence movement.
