Women, money, and the law : nineteenth-century fiction, gender, and the courts
For this book on the economics of gender Joyce Warren explored hundreds of court cases involving women litigants between 1845 and 1875, and she studied the lives and works of a wide selection of women writers. Chapters on court cases are alternated by chapters on works of fiction. A chapter on economics and the American Renaissance woman discusses fictional works of Susan Warner, E.D.E.N. Southworth, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Maria Cummins, and Fanny Fern. A chapter on the economics of race looks at four African American women writers and the intersections of class and gender identity with respect to economics. The book ends with chapters on the economics of divorce and women's economic independence in works of fiction by Fern, Alcott and Gilman.
