This has been on my shelf for so long I am not even sure when I got it or what list/recommendation I found it on! :) Having been written in the 1890's, much of what was written was outdated. Yet, it provided a very interesting view on society, specifically woman's rights, during that time. I must admit, I skimmed much of the last 30 pages or so, because I was a little overwhelmed by all the names and storylines mentioned!

This is actually a compilation of writings from many authors, or the revising committee as they call themselves. The book followed the different books of the Old and New Testament, providing commentary and insight into the women of the bible. Many aspects of woman's rights were discussed, including how the Bible is actually pro-woman in parts but is either overlooked by the religious superiors (at the time) or twisted into becoming something else.
