“The Lot of Gifted Ladies Is Hard”: A Study of Harriet Taylor Mill Criticism

Hypatia 9 (3):132 - 162 (1994)

The question, "Why has Harriet Taylor Mill appeared in the history of philosophy as she has?" has several answers. The answers intertwine the personality and politics of Harriet, the sexism of those who wrote of her (which was a reflection of the overall status of women during the period the commentator wrote), misunderstandings of the means and meaning of her collaboration with John Stuart Mill, and the disturbing challenge of her questioning.
