I learned a lot about this amazing woman. Inspired, smart and ahead of her times in inumerable ways, and also tied to her times in some ultimately troubling almost disasterous ways. Does anyone else who read this see it as reminiscent of early 1970s feminisim when the fight was for white middle and well educated women's rights, not all women's rights? This book goes a long way to explain the rupture of the abolitionists and the sufrigests - I'd always wondered about that.
