about

Two epochal developments profoundly influenced the history of the Atlantic world between 1770 and 1870-the rise of women''s rights activism and the drive to eliminate chattel slavery. The contributors to this volume, eminent scholars from a variety of disciplines, investigate the intertwining histories of abolitionism and feminism on both sides of the Atlantic during this dynamic century of change. They illuminate the many ways that the two movements developed together and influenced one another.
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.
