Obviously, I made substantial changes to this article. As a synopsis: I expanded the comment on Darwin's influence, added the Alpha and Omega quote and citation, formatted the entire article with headings, reorganized content to match these headings, added the academic content and placed this under the new heading Scholar, and reorganized the works into a new Bibliography section. I hope Jane would be pround :) Justin 01:14, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Statements and terms used without source must for time being dismissed[edit]

Changes that done due to material that is unreferenced, poorly sourced or gives a one sided opinion and thats the as facts. 1. Mary Beard reference and cited quote is general knowledge and appears elsewhere. 2. Harrison stated she was for Women's suffrage, but nowhere in here texts does the word feminist come up or even give any reason to be labeled as such. Women's suffrage is not a synonym for feminism and cannot be simply interchanged with a rough hand. 3. Attributions and categories listed with out proper sources and references.

I agree that the article, as currently written and sourced, does not support the claim that she was a feminist. Paul August 11:11, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
