Butler, Josephine E.
The Constitution Violated: an Essay
(Portrayer Publishers, 2003 facsimile of 1871 text). In 'The Constitution Violated' (1871), Butler stresses the unconstitutional nature of the Contagious Diseases Acts, shifting the discussion away from its usual emphasis on immorality. The Acts, she claims, infringe the constitutional rights of women, and violate the enduring principles of the Magna Carta. This new argument, couched in the language of individual rights and liberties, added a vital note of legal authority and respectability to the repeal campaign. The text played an important part in the eventual repeal of the Contagious Diseases Acts in 1886, but has been difficult to obtain in the original. Here presented as an attractive Portrayer facsimile. Paperback. New book, fine. 181pp. Order No. NSBK-C7549
Keywords: 0954476115, Josephine E. Butler, history, women, women's history, Victorian, nineteenth century, Britain, British, England, English, equality, working women, women workers, Portrayer, Portrayer Publishers, prostitution, prostitutes, State Regulation of Vice, Contagious Diseases Act, social purity, legal, constitution, constitutional, unconstitutional, protest, women campaigners, campaign, individual rights, liberty, liberties, authority, Parliament, Ladies National Association for Repeal, Portrayer facsimiles, Portrayer reprints, new titles, crime, criminal
