From Eve to Evolution by Kimberly A. Hamlin

From Eve to Evolution: Darwin, Science, and Women's Rights in Gilded Age America - Kimberly A. Hamlin

This was a somewhat dry but interesting look at early American feminism and its relationship with the science of its day and evolutionary theory.


There was a fair bit on Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Margaret Sanger, among others. Not recommended for the casual reader, but if you're familiar with several of the major players in 19th century American feminism and want more detail on the evolution of the movement, this could prove interesting. I'll admit to my eyes glazing over a few times. It does point out that most modern evolutionary psychology is BS though, and it gets points for that.
