Rate this:
Harriet Martineau (1802-1876) was one of the leading journalists of the 19th century and a role model for women's success in a man's world. She was a feminist in practice rather than by principle, and used the certainties of religion, and of femininity as then defined by religion, to invent a public role and persona, achieving economic and spiritual independence in an innovative career without offending accepted social mores.
