The new book Provocative Mothers and Their Precocious Daughters: 19th Century Women’s Rights Leaders (Atlantic Publishing, 2020) by Suzanne Gehring Schnittman looks at the relationship between mothers and daughters, and pioneer women’s rights leaders Martha Wright, Abby Kelley Foster, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucy Stone.
Martha Wright, Abby Kelley Foster, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucy Stone worked diligently for what they believed women deserved. Letters, diary entries, and journals reveal the strong mother-daughter relationships that not only enriched their personal lives, but the woman suffrage movement as a whole.
Suzanne Gehring Schnittman is a former History Instructor at Wells College.
