John Stuart Mill was a women’s rights advocate, having been influenced by the thinking of his father, the Utilitarian philosopher James Mill, and by his wife, philosopher Harriet Taylor Mill (1807-1858). The freedom of women can be seen as a microcosm of Mill’s general philosophy of freedom, in which “the ‘greatest good’ of the community is inseparable from the liberty of the individual” and the definition of tyranny is expanded to include the domination of minorities by a democratically elected majority (PMM 345). ‘The Subjection of Women,’

“among campaigners for women’s suffrage… rapidly became a sacred text and gave him a position of heroic, almost apostolic, authority within the nascent women’s movement” (ODNB).

 

This 1869 first American edition of Mill’s highly controversial work is “the last of [Mill’s] great political tracts” (ODNB) and “the most important theoretical statement for the cause of woman suffrage.” (Britannica)
