John Stuart Mill (1869)

The Subjection
of Women

While in France seeking treatment for tuberculosis in 1858, Harriet died. Mill and Taylor had been working on The Subjection of Women at the time. Helen, Harriet Taylor’s daughter, now helped Mill to finish the book, working closely together for the next 15 years. In his autobiography Mill wrote that “Whoever, either now or hereafter, may think of me and my work I have done, must never forget that it is the product not of one intellect and conscience but of three, the least considerable of whom, and above all the least original, is the one whose name is attached to it.”
