Written in the late 1800's this book gives a close up account of Angelina and Sarah Grimke, two early abolitionists and suffragettes. While their primary cause was slavery, their public presence as women thrust onto the stage of women's rights. Written in the 19th century style with few footnotes, the reading was somewhat tedious but gave a good sense of these two amazing women

This is the true story of two sisters born to a wealthy family and raised in pre-civil war South Carolina. Both eventually turned their backs on their old way of life, especially the slavery and excessive finery and moved up north. It is here that they began work for abolition and suffrage.

Extra, extra, read all about it

The Grimke sisters are a wonderful subject of study for students of civil rights, abolition, women's rights, and, well, all humanity.
