Harriet Martineau was an eclectic and somewhat controversial English author, activist, and public figure, noted for the clarity of her wide-ranging mind. She wrote on an array of topics, including education, the antislavery movement, women's rights, political economy, religion, farming, and foreign policy, as well as novels, travel books, and children's stories. The respect she was accorded for her intelligence and ability was always tempered by Victorian views on gender roles. She continues to hold an ambiguous, almost contradictory, position in Victorian society.
