In the eighteenth century, women were voting shareholders in the East India Company and Bank of England. In the mid-nineteenth century, financial legislation expanded opportunities for investing in publicly traded shares by limiting the liability of shareholders. The Married Women’s Property Acts of 1870 and 1882 brought married women into the market as independent investors. This chapter discusses patterns of women’s investments in government securities, canals, docks, and banks, as well as in domestic, foreign, and colonial railways to set the stage for the following literary analyses and to support the argument that female authors’ personal experiences of gaining independence through investing moderated their critique of capitalism compared to that of their male contemporaries.
