By Kimberly A. Hamlin
Hamlin chronicles the lives and writings of the ladies who mixed their enthusiasm for evolutionary technology with their dedication to women’s rights, together with Antoinette Brown Blackwell, Eliza Burt Gamble, Helen Hamilton Gardener, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. those Darwinian feminists believed evolutionary technological know-how proved that girls weren't not as good as males, that it used to be traditional for moms to paintings outdoors the house, and that ladies should still regulate copy. the sensible functions of this evolutionary feminism got here to fruition, Hamlin indicates, within the early considering and writing of the yankee contraception pioneer Margaret Sanger.
Much scholarship has been devoted to reading what Darwin and different male evolutionists needed to say approximately girls, yet little or no has been written relating to what girls themselves needed to say approximately evolution. From Eve to Evolution provides much-needed woman voices to the colossal literature on Darwin in America.
