Hotbed: Bohemian New York and the Secret Club that Sparked Modern Feminism (Hardback)Joanna Scutts (author)
Perfect for fans of Square Haunting, Scutt’s illuminating, deeply researched group biography delves into the fascinating members of a 1912 secret society in New York’s Greenwich Village that consisted of likeminded advocates of women's suffrage, equal marriage and free love.
The dazzling story of the early feminists who blazed a trail for the movement's most radical ideas.
New York City, 1912: in downtown Greenwich Village, a group of women gathered, all with a plan to change the world.
This was the first meeting of 'Heterodoxy', a secret social club. Its members were passionate advocates of women's suffrage, labour rights, equal marriage and free love. They were socialites and socialists; reformers and revolutionaries; artists, writers and scientists. Hotbed is the never-before-told story of the club whose audacious ideas and unruly acts transformed an international feminist agenda into a modern way of life.
