About this Item

ISBN-13: 9781584779094; ISBN-10: 1584779098. By a Notable Suffragist Cook, Tennessee Claflin, Lady. Constitutional Equality a Right of Woman; or, A Consideration of the Various Relations Which She Sustains as a Necessary Part of the Body of Society and Humanity; with Her Duties to Herself - together with a Review of the Constitution of the United States, Showing That the Rights to Vote is Guaranteed to All Citizens. Also a Review of the Rights of Children. Originally published: New York: Woodhull, Claflin & Co., 1871. [6], 148 pp. frontis. portrait. Reprinted 2008 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584779094. ISBN-10: 1584779098. Hardcover. Small bump to bottom of spine. Else fine. $50. * Reprint of the first edition. Written by one of the more radical women's rights activists of the nineteenth century, covers a wide range of topics concerning the role of women in American society. It also includes a chapter on the rights of children that focuses on the question of prenatal care. Tennie Claflin [1845-1923] was the younger sister of Victoria Woodhull, one of the leaders of the nineteenth-century woman's suffrage movement and the first woman to run for President of the United States (in 1872). Together they became notorious as the first female Wall Street brokers. It was rumored that Cornelius Vanderbilt underwrote their business, and that Tennie was his mistress. The opening of their firm in 1870 created such a sensation that 100 policemen were needed to keep the throngs of the curious in order. Three months later their financial success as brokers enabled them to begin publishing Woodhull & Claflin's Weekly. They went on to publish this book in which Claflin makes a strong case for women's equality in 1871, the year Woodhull petitioned Congress for women's voting rights. Bookseller Inventory # 60196
