Female Abolitionists: Phillis Wheatley, Sarah Mapps Douglass, Lydia Maria Child, Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Others. Edited by Bob Blaisdell.

Courageous women stepped forward in solidarity in the nineteenth century, advocating for the abolition of slavery and for women's rights. These women, undaunted by opposing views, fueled the rise of female abolitionists. Although women did not have the right to vote, they knew how to petition, publish, sermonize and lecture. Black and white women alike raised money and awareness and wrote and spoke passionately against slavery.

Ellen Craft, Sarah Mapps Douglass, Charlotte Forten, Sarah Louisa Forten, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Mary Prince, Mary Ann Shadd, Maria W. Stewart, and Sojourner Truth are just a few of the Black women who risked their lives to fight for freedom for all. Leading white abolitionists include Susan B. Anthony Elizabeth Margaret Chandler, Lydia Marie Child, Angelina E. Grimke, Sarah M. Grimke, Elizabeth Heyrick, Lucretia Mott, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. This collection of essays, speeches, and poems by a bold group of women will educate and inspire all who are interested in this era of American history.
