Sex-Segregated Utopias Bibliography


Query From Edward Ross Dickinson r861@aol.com 02 Dec 1998

I am doing some reading about sex reform thought in Germany around 1900, and am interested in getting a comparative perspective on some of the speculative and utopian ideas I am looking at. In particular, I would like to find some references to secondary literature discussing sex-segregated utopias (or dystopias)--feminist or otherwise--in the period 1880-1920. I would appreciate any pointers members can give me.
