The Englishwoman's Review was a feminist periodical published in England between 1866 and 1910.

Until 1869 called in full The Englishwoman's Review: a journal of woman's work, in 1870 (after a break in publication) it was renamed The Englishwoman's Review of Social and Industrial Questions.[1]

One of the first feminist journals, the Englishwoman's Review was a product of the early women's movement. Its first editor was Jessie Boucherett, who saw it as the successor to the English Woman's Journal (1858–64).[2] Her successor, Helen Blackburn, was a long-time editor, 1880–90, and joint editor, 1890–95.[3]
