Suffragette, egoist, philosopher, Dora Marsden (1882-1960) burst the chains keeping women from education; the chains keeping women from the vote; the chains of conservative feminism; the chains of philosophy, of time, and of language. Her literary and philosophical journals were among the earliest to publish James Joyce, Ezra Pound, H.D., Margaret Storm Jameson, and T.S. Eliot. She was described as the Max Stirner of feminism. From shouting down Winston Churchill, to pioneering publications, to decades in a mental hospital: this biography is the first and foremost record of her life. Over 400 pages, and includes a bibliography and an index.
