Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies is currently accepting submissions for a
special Summer 2006 issue on "The New Woman and Sexuality." The New Woman of
the fin de siecle challenged gender norms by pushing for greater career and
educational opportunities, by arguing for the necessity of marriage reform
and by frankly acknowledging women's sexuality. Some, like Sarah Grand, were
proponents of sexual purity while others like Victoria Cross repeatedly
pushed the boundaries. In this special issue we hope to spark discussion on
this fascinating aspect of New Woman literature that has not yet been fully
explored.

Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:
