Synopsis: The complete correspondence of two important figures in the woman suffrage and antislavery movements: Lucy Stone, woman's rights and abolitionist leader, and Antoinette Brown Blackwell, a prolific author who conducted a lifelong feminist exploration of social mores and science and who became the first woman ordained in the United States in the Protestant ministry. They met as students at Oberlin College, and Antoinette Brown later married Samuel Blackwell, the brother of Lucy Stone's husband, Henry Blackwell. These women exchanged letters for nearly fifty years, touching on some of the most significant topics of the time: abolition, suffrage, marriage, dress reform, the temperance movement, literature, and religion. The letters also reveal the frustrations and rewards of two first-generation college-educated women who sought to affirm their roles as wives and mothers while pursuing their professional careers and political commitments.

From Library Journal: This correspondence documents the ideals and careers of two women who have received little attention from historians: Stone, a lecturer on antislavery, temperance, and women's rights, and a leading figure in the American Woman Suffrage Association, and Brown, the first woman minister in a regular U.S. Protestant denomination. The two became sisters-in-law through their respective marriages to Henry and Samuel Blackwell. Detailing their shared political pursuits as well as personal and family concerns, these letters show the importance of supportive female friendship to the success of pioneering feminists and provide a sensitive glimpse into the lives of two women who juggled family and career a century ago.
