Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is a tour de force. No one has ever developed the kind of three-pronged analysis that Wellman offers of the constituency for the women's rights movement. She shows how radical Quakers, legal reformers, and political abolitionists converged in Seneca Falls at the 1848 Woman's Rights Convention, and demonstrates the centrality of Elizabeth Cady Stanton in bringing these groups together. This book is the definitive analysis of the founding of the women's rights movement, one that many of us in the profession have long awaited." --Nancy A. Hewitt, Rutgers University, author of Southern Discomfort: Women's Activism in Tampa, Florida, 1880s-1920s "This book fills a major historiographic gap in our understanding of the emergence of the women's rights movement. With clear and jargon-free writing, Wellman compellingly depicts the social, political, economic, and cultural forces that combined to produce the convention, placing us in the event and giving it new historical depth and immediacy." -- Kathryn Kish Sklar, author of Women's Rights Emerges within the Antislavery Movement: A Short History with Documents

Interesting topic but really could use some good editing. Way too detailed for my taste. It seemed like the book got off course with so much focus on abolition even though that was a big part of the story of women's suffrage.

Learn from the early history of the woman's suffrage movement. Remember the significant contribution that the Quaker's made. Wonder that today we still have so far to go to ensure equal rights for women. When women do not have equal rights we are all diminished.
