The Abolitionist Sisterhood: Women's Political Culture in Antebellum America
Jean Fagan Yellin (ed.) and John C. Van Horne (ed.).
A lively exploration of this nineteenth-century reform movement. The Abolitionist Sisterhood brings together sixteen essays, all but one published here for the first time, by a distinguished group of historians. After an introductory overview it includes chapters on the principal female antislavery societies, discussions of black women's political culture in the antebellum north, articles on the strategies and tactics the antislavery women devised, and a richly illustrated essay presenting rare graphics from both sides of abolitionist debates. A final chapter compares the experiences of American and British women who attended the 1840 World Anti-Slavery convention in London. (Ithaca: Cornell University Press, published in cooperation with the Library Company of Philadelphia, 1994.)
