This feminist textual content is published the following with a revised and up to date creation. It examines the actions of feminist campaigners round such concerns as baby abuse and prostitution and the way those campaigns formed social purity within the Eighties and Eighteen Nineties. It demonstrates how the thriving and militant feminism of the past due nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was once undermined, and asserts that the decline of this feminism was once due principally to the advertising of a sexual ideology which used to be adverse to women's independence.

To capture something of this range in analyses of the home, I want to draw on the work of three feminist scholars: Minnie Bruce Pratt, bell hooks and Sharon Marcus, each of whom has taken a different approach to a feminist understanding of the meaning of home. While all three challenge conventional associations and assumptions about the meaning of home, the ﬁrst two authors connect their personal experiences to broader political processes, whereas Marcus’s work is a scholarly analysis of multiple texts in which she traces the signiﬁcance of the apartment as a particular built form in ﬁctional and other representations of nineteenth-century London and Paris.
Women had been ‘hidden from history’. Now they were ‘becoming visible’ (Bridenthal et al. 1987). Feminist historians were ‘redressing the balance’ (Davin 1987) between men and women in history, ‘retrieving women’s history’ (Kleinberg 1987) from its almost invisible status. Second-wave feminists had long campaigned around the fact that women formed a majority rather than a minority of the global population. Now, that majority was able to ﬁnd its past (Lerner 34 Time 1979). And, as that past emerged, it began to pose fascinating challenges to the categorizations and chronology of the dominant historical canon.
In new work that straddles the boundaries of geography, literary and cultural studies, spatial metaphors and concepts play a key role. Caren Kaplan (1996: 144) has noted how maps become metaphors signalling a heightened awareness of the political and economic structures that demarcate zones of inclusion and exclusion as well as the 26 Place and Space interstitial spaces of indeterminacy. Topography and geography now intersect literary and cultural criticism in a growing interdisciplinary inquiry into emergent identity formations and social practices.
