John Stuart Mill (1806-73) is one of the foremost representative of utilitarian thought as well as one of the most influential of nineteenth century liberals. Influenced by Harriet Taylor (his wife), Mill developed a very humane version of utilitarianism that was sympathetic to women's rights, labor unions, proportional representation, and other liberal themes.
