Product Description

We have “greater cause for revolution than the men of 1776” radical suffragists contended as they demonstrated, risked arrest, committed civil disobedience, refused to pay their taxes, ran a woman for U.S. president, and petitioned for their rights as citizens of a republic.

The empowering story of feminism’s legacy of nonviolent civil disobedience is told for the first time by a pioneer by a pioneer movement activist/historian Sally Roesch Wagner. A founder of one of the country’s first Women’s Studies programs, and one of the first women to receive a Ph.D. for work in the discipline, Wagner is the biographer of Matilda Joslyn Gage, who was a leading figure in the dramatic Time of Protest.
