Until the 1850s, under the law a husband and wife were one, and that one was the husband. Presenting an account of the origins of women's rights to property and their children, this work deals with the moves made by Henrietta Greenhill, Caroline Norton and their associates. Those developments, which included several legal ""causes celebres"", involved prominent people such as Lord Melbourne, Richard Brinsley Sheridan and Mary Shelley.
