Women's Rights and Transatlantic Antislavery in the Era of Emancipation
Series: The David Brion Davis Series
Approaching a wide range of transnational topics, the authors ask how conceptions of slavery and gendered society differed in the United States, France, Germany, and Britain; how women’s activism reached across national boundaries; how racial identities affected the boundaries of women’s activism; and what was distinctive about African-American women’s participation as activists. Their thought-provoking answers provide rich insights into the history of struggles for social justice across the Atlantic world.
“This collection is undoubtedly the best and most wide-ranging collection that addresses the broad themes in the relationship between antislavery and women's rights."—Susan Zaeske, University of Wisconsin
