Editorial Reviews


"Offers the opportunity to expand historians' comprehension of the complex flow of ideas in a given time and place, even when those ideas may have been considered too dangerous or indecorous to be heard."
The Historian

From the Inside Flap

Two years before the landmark Seneca Falls Convention, six ordinary women in Jefferson County, New York, presented a petition to the NY State Constitutional Convention that accused the state government of departing from "true democratic principles" by denying women the right to vote. Ginzberg tells their remarkable story for the first time, bringing light to a neglected watershed moment in the story of women's suffrage.
