The letters in this collection were written during centuries when ‘the bar to success for women was set almost impossibly high’, and the greatness of these letter-writers resides in their resilience in the face of seemingly insuperable odds. Ranging chronologically from Lady Joan Pelham writing to her husband in 1399 to Katherine Mansfield’s letters to John Middleton Murray between 1915 and 1918, the 27 women featured include Nell Gwyn, Mary Wollstonecraft, George Sand and Rosa Luxemburg.
