This very useful collection brings together the best recent writing on Mill's controversial essay, highlighting the diversity of interpretations of Mill's feminism. It will be an indispensable volume for Mill scholars as well as those interested in the history of feminism.

Spanning twenty years, the essays in this volume are presented as moments in an ongoing dialogue. One essay makes a compelling case for a particular line of interpretation and then the next stands this reading on its head. The result is a rich dialogue and debate, a compelling and highly readable book, sure to be of interest to scholars, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates alike.
— Jean Keller, College of St. Benedict; APA Newsletter on Feminism and Philosophy
I believe this to be the best volume published so far to assist a reading of Mill's The Subjection of Women. Altogether, it is a useful contribution to the literature on Mill and a helpful guide to readers of his work.
— Henry R. West, professor of philosophy at Macalester College and author of An Introduction to Mill's Utilitarian Ethics
