Paperback
The women's rights movement in 19th century America has primarily been interpreted as a secular movement. However, Beverley Zink-Sawyer examines the lives of the three 19th-century clergywomen - Antoinette Brown Blackwell, Olympia Brown and Anna Howard Shaw - who saw their calling to the suffrage movement as an extension of their ministry and left their parish to become leaders in the movement. She tells their story and demonstrates the vital importance of their religious influence on the movement.

In doing so, she persuasively demonstrates the vital importance of these leaders--of their religious rhetoric and their theological leadership--in shaping the movement as a whole, reclaiming its religious roots and making a major, even corrective, contribution to American history.
