This work provides an account of seven female playwrights who enjoyed professional success in the late 18th and early 19th century. It discusses the trials and prejudices they endured, ranging from accusations of plagiarism to sexual harassment. Even today, the shadow of oppression has not completely lifted - a female playwright may no longer be a contradiction in terms or an offence to feminine modesty, but she is still battling with a hazardous occupation for a woman.
