Women's Playwriting and the Women's Movement 1890-1918 is the first dedicated study of a period of exceptional productivity for female playwrights. British theatre and women's position within society both underwent fundamental changes at the turn of the 20th century, and the ensuring debates required careful navigation. Anna Farkas draws on a broad, oft-overlooked corpus of plays, including works by Florence Bell, Aimee Beringer, Constance Fletcher, Githa Sowerby and Elizabeth Baker, to offer new perspectives on female playwrights' engagement with first wave feminism, the diversification of theatre, and the professional networks that defined their trade.
