In the two decades since Feminism and Suffrage was first published the increased presence of women in politics and the What I wrote for classEllen DuBois illustrates the early development of the feminist movement As she shows feminist women had clear and well articulated grievances regarding their uneual status before the law and their abuse by men The abolitionist movement provided an ideology – Garrisonianism – and a sympathetic structure and constituency for feminist women to carry out agitation on behalf of women’s rights While states responded favorably to women’s economic and property concerns the notion of women entering the political sphere via the franchise was unpalatable Feminists’ efforts were further hindered by the split between those who favored prioritizing black men’s suffrage before women’s suffrage and those who urged an all or nothing approach to universal suffrageAs the universal suffragists lost the support of the abolitionists they attempted to find it elsewhere first from the Democrats who did not find it politically expedient and then from labor The middle class feminists did not share the class consciousness of the working class women they tried to organize and their alliance was short lived Finally in creating the National Woman Suffrage Association with fellow members of the middle class Stanton and Anthony produced the first independent national feminist organization What DuBois touches on briefly is that the move from Garrisonian agitation to organizing a movement had a radicalizing influence on the feminism of Anthony and Stanton “especially with respect to sexual and economic issues”

Feminism and Suffrage The Emergence of an Independent Women's Movement in America 1848 1869Gender gap in voting patterns have focused renewed attention on an issue generally perceived as nineteenth century Fo In Feminism Suffrage Dubois focuses on what she deems the radical feminists of the era and how they shaped the women's movement in the United States during a time when feminism was a transnational story She argues that up “until the development of women's rights and woman suffrage politics the major approach to improving women's status came from domestic reformers such as Catherine Beecher” because the place of women was within the domestic sphere while men lived within the public sphere 16 By focusing on how “women's discontent crystallized in the political demand for women's emancipation” Dubois work shows us that women during this era “laid the groundwork for a feminist movement by articulating a set of demand for women's rights and by acuiring the skills and self confidence necessary to offer political leadership for other women” 19 This work is essential in the study of women in American history because it covers the early years of first wave feminism beginning just after the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848 and stopping at the creation of the National Woman Suffrage Association and American Women Suffrage Association This book is important to the study of history in general because woman suffrage is one of the three great reforms in American history next to labour movements and black liberation and all three movements are interconnected “Women in the Garrisonian abolitionist movement not only absorbed its anticlericalism but also drew on its principle of the absolute moral euality of all human beings” 35 Once blacks suffrage became the central issue of Reconstruction politics the women's rights movement began to call themselves the women's suffrage movement to align themselves closer to that movement hoping to capitalise off its success 54 until the Kansas campaign of 1867 saw the Eual Rights Association split and feminist abandoned it 78 It was just after this that they began to establish connections with the National Labor Union declaring in an April 1868 issue of Revolution “The Principles of the National Labor Union are our principles We see on the surface of this great movement the dawn of brighter days” 110 when they realised the NLU was willing to create their own political framework and establish a third party Though history shows they never gained mutual support from the NLU and the Working Women's Association lasted just a year the connections it created were essential to the women's suffrage movement's progression and eventual success as the WWA was the first time suffragist focused on oraganisation rather than agitation and this led to an independent women's movement This book clearly portrays these events and their effects After reading this book I can easily recognise its value to women's history particularly in the fact that she was able to discuss Stanton and Anthony blatant racism without whitewashing history I just wish there was a bit about the Seneca Fall Convention and the politics of that
