Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Striving to rescue women from a state she considered marital feudalism, Anthony (1820-1906) organized conventions, petitioned and canvassed for support, ceaselessly campaigning for women's property and other legal rights, and especially for suffrage. PW called this a ``comprehensive'' biography. Photos. (Sept.)
Library Journal - Library Journal
In this life of Anthony, Barry has produced a scholarly but very readable biography of the great women's rights activist. She explores the interaction of her subject's family background, education, Quaker upbringing, and early teaching career with the temperance movement to produce a woman who in her 20s chose striving for social justice over marriage as a vocation. Barry delineates Anthony's friendships with other reformers, her involvement in the abolitionist movement, and her stance during the splits and scandals of the first feminist era. Recommended.Christine M. Hill, Free Lib. of Philadelphia
Barry, noted feminist sociologists and author of, Female sexual slavery, offers an enlightening biography of perhaps the most unconventional woman of her century. By drawing upon letters, diaries, and other documents, she integrates Anthony's personal story into the political, economic, and cultural milieu of 19th c. America. Annotation c.
