Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

She was the first woman to address the U.S. Congress, the first to operate a brokerage firm on Wall Street, and the first to run for president. She's the woman Gloria Steinem called the most controversial suffragist of them all. In this extensively researched biography, journalist Mary Gabriel has written a comprehensive account of one of American history's most unusual and fascinating women, who, in an era of Victorian morality, was the loudest and most radical voice for women's equality. One of the most controversial American women of the late nineteenth century springs to life in this study that leaves no stone unturned.--Publishers Weekly; Deftly written biography . . . of a hell-raising visionary.--Mirabella; A meaty slice of feminist history peppered with Victorian drama.--Civilization; Remarkable . . . warrants a spot on every serious American history student's bookshelf.--Kirkus Reviews, pointer.
