Quaker women in the eighteenth century were carrying on the faith and activity of their seventeenth-century forebears, but as a group their lives and writings have been neglected in modern times by both Quaker and other historians. Gil Skidmore brings together a rich array of letters, spiritual autobiographies, journals, and memoirs to put the lives and concerns of these women into context.

Gil Skidmore has spent many years researching the lives and writings of early Quakers. Her publications include Elizabeth Fry: A Quaker Life (Yale University Press).
