Summary

These autobiographies illustrate the emergence of American women from their traditional position of dependence and legal and social inequality. Here are five women of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries: Anna Cora Mowatt, a well-known playwright and popular actress; Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a prominent leader of the first women's rights movement; Harriet Jacobs, an escaped slave; Mary Antin, a Russian Jew who emigrated with her family to the United States in the late nineteenth century; and Margaret Sanger, founder of the birth control movement in the United States. An ntroduction and notes accompany each autobiography.

At Carnegie Mellon University, Lois J. Fowler is Professor of English and David H. Fowler is Professor of History.
