"A foundation text in women's history, Women of the Republic fuses innovation with centrality, clarity of style with sophistication of analysis. It demonstrates the centrality of women's history to political history, of Republican Mothers to the world the Founding Fathers thought they built alone."--Carroll Smith-Rosenberg, University of Michigan
Linda K. Kerber presents a groundbreaking analysis of the role of women during the Revolutionary Era. Drawn from the direct testimony provided by women in their letters, diaries, and legal records, Women of the Republic describes women's participation in the war, evaluates changes in their education in the late eighteenth century, and analyzes their status in law and society. It also traces the development of the ideology of 'Republican Motherhood, ' which urged women to direct their patriotism toward the nurturing of the next generation of public-spirited citizens.
