Title
Amazons and Victims: Resisting Wife-Abuse in Working-Class Montréal, 1869-1879
Abstract
An analysis of wife-battering as reported in the Montreal Star. The author argues that resistance to wife-abuse in the second-half of the nineteenth century was linked to the temperance movement. The movement made wife-battering into a public issue by linking it to its anti-drinking campaign.
