The editors present a very sophisticated interpretation of the multiple strands of feminist thought. I especially appreciate the clear explanation of strains and debates within feminism and the discussion of women and the public... This volume will be invaluable in teaching and as a resource to scholars. It will also, I believe, find an important audience among contemporary activists for whom this history is utterly essential. -- Sara M. Evans, author of Born for Liberty: A History of Women in America Public Women, Public Words is a wonderfully rewarding documentary record of American feminist thought (and action) in all its power and diversity. This remarkably comprehensive selection includes little-known texts as well as the essential classics, and the editors' insightful commentary embeds these texts within a subtle, richly nuanced interpretive overview. -- Paul S. Boyer, author of Urban Masses and Moral Order in America, 1820-1920 A comprehensive and wide-ranging collection that will be extremely useful for courses in American women's history. The editors' succinct yet thorough introductions admirably establish the appropriate context for the documents, which have been chosen with great care to illustrate major themes of feminist thought. -- Mary Beth Norton, author of Liberty's Daughters: The Revolutionary Experience of American Women, 1750-1850 The first collection to focus exclusively on documenting American feminism... Recommended for high school, college, and public libraries. Feminist Collections: A Quarterly Of Women's Studies ResourcesFrom the Publisher:
This expansive collection of public statements documents the history of women struggling for their civil, political, social, and economic rights. From the earliest testimonies at Salem to the pleas for fair wages at the end of the nineteenth century, these documents trace the development of feminist thought and action in its many forms. Public Women, Public Words draws material from an eclectic blend of public texts, including speeches and broadsides, testimonies and transcripts from trials and other legal proceedings, fiction and poetry, articles from popular, middle-brow, radical, and academic journals, newspapers, and magazines-all in an effort to present the many strands of feminist thought over three centuries. Instead of presenting a static interpretation of what feminism is Public Women, Public Words gives a complex and multi-sided view of this dynamic intellectual movement. Women of many backgrounds, economic classes, races, and political orientations speak up about what feminism was to them. Clear introductions to each of the book's parts place the documents within their context and offer readers suggestions on how these texts contribute to a sweeping interpretation of feminism in America.
