Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Anna Doyle Wheeler (born 1785, Tipperary, Ireland, Died 1848) was a writer and advocate of political rights for women and the benefits of contraception. She married Francis Massey Wheeler when she was aged 15 and they separated 12 years later. After his death she supplemented her income by translating the works of French philosophers. She was an acquaintance of Robert Owen, Jeremy Bentham, and Frances Wright. The philosopher William Thompson described his book Appeal of One Half of the Human Race, Women, Against the Pretensions of the Other Half, Men, to Retain them in Political, and Hence in Civil and Domestic, Slavery as the "joint property" of himself and her. A staunch advocate of political rights for women and equal opportunities in education, she was friendly with French feminists and socialists.show more
