Women, Radicalism, and Revolution : a Study of Women and the Radical Movements of the English Revolutionary Period

Winston Jones, Sophie Caroline
Abstract
This study examines the role of women withih four of the major radical movements of the English Revolution and the extent and impact of their�participation within these movements. The movements included in this study are the Levellers, the,True Levellers or Diggers, the Fifth Monarchists and the Quakers. While all the other movements failed to survive: the immediate Revolutionary period, the Quakers survived beyond the restoration and this study thus includes the period from the outbreak of war in 1642 to the Glorious Revolution of 1688.
