Rate this:
Recounting the story of America's antebellum woman's rights movement through the efforts of Lucy Stone (1818-1893), this important account differs dramatically from those that focus almost exclusively on Susan B. Anthony or Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Million chronicles not only the public side of Stone, but her personal battles as well.
The work and influence of one of antebellum America's most famous orators and activists establishes her as the early movement's central figure and driving force.

As one of the most popular orators in the US during the decade before the Civil War, says American historian Million, Stone (1818-93) symbolized the right, ability, and desire of women to exercise a public voice. This was distinct from, though closely relate to her strong advocacy of women being allowed a voice in government. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
