A cultural icon of the "fin de siecle", the "New Woman" was not one figure, but several. In the guise of a bicycling, cigarette smoking Amazon, the "New Woman" romped through the pages of "Punch" and popular fiction as a neurasthenic victim of social oppression, she suffered in the pages of "New Woman" novels such as Sarah Grand's hugely successful "The Heavenly Twins". This title marks a departure in 19th century scholarship to explore the polyvocal nature of the late Victorian debates around gender, motherhood, class, race and imperialism which converged in the name of the "New Woman".
