Transatlantic Feminisms in the Age of Revolutions

Lisa L. Moore, Joanna Brooks, and Caroline Wigginton

Abstract

This book restores a lost chapter in the history of feminism and illuminates the complexity of the rights debates of the eighteenth century.

Keywords: feminism, trade, colonialism, dispossession, slaves, free women, religious leaders, violence, actress, indigenous women
