Abstract

O inesperado surto pandémico, à escala global, da covid-19 veio colocar no topo das agendas políticas mundiais questões de saúde pública. Tendo este facto em atenção, o presente texto aborda o ensaio Cassandra, escrito em 1852 por Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), enquadrando-o na longa era vitoriana e relacionando-o com a
“questão feminina” e The Subjection of Women (1869), de John Stuart Mill (1806-1873).

The unexpected outbreak, at global level, of the Covid-19 pandemic placed issues concerning public health at the top of the world’s political agendas. Bearing this fact in mind, this article presents Cassandra, an essay written in 1852 by Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), setting it in the context of the long Victorian age and relating it to the “female question” and
The Subjection of Women (1869), by John Stuart Mill (1806-1873).
