Marilyn S. Blackwell and Kristen T. Oertel

Despite her accomplishments and considerable respect from contemporaries such as Susan B. Anthony, Clarina Nichols has been largely overlooked by historians. Marilyn S. Blackwell and Kristen T. Oertel remedy this oversight and examine Nichols’s important role in women’s rights, antislavery, and westward expansion. In their comprehensive portrait, Blackwell and Oertel uncover the fascinating story of a complex woman while providing a window on pre-suffrage political engagement and the creation of public womanhood in the nineteenth century. 344 pages, black & white photos and illustrations, hardcover only. Published in 2010.
