Josephine Butler and the Word of God
Josephine Butler was a leading advocate for women's rights. Her enduring reputation is rightly first and foremost as an eminent Victorian feminist. Specifically, Butler is most famous for leading the campaign against the Contagious Diseases Acts. Religiously, she was an evangelical Anglican. She drew heavily on scriptural language and arguments to advance social reform and saw her own work through the lens of a biblical prophet. She even wrote her works of biblical interpretation. This chapter uncovers a feminist who was profoundly committed to Scripture.
