Why have so many remarkable men fought for women’s rights, often risking their careers and ruining their health? Who were these men, what were their backgrounds, above all: what kind of relationships did they have with women? Finally, if there have been so many deviations from the male-oppressor/female-victim cliche, doesn’t this stereotype need to be relativized or indeed rejected? Feminism’s Founding Fathers is the first book to tell the untold story of the “traitors” to the men’s cause – the pioneers and fellow-travellers of female emancipation. It challenges accepted wisdom and reveals the vital role that men have played in making Women’s Liberation happen.
