Summary:

Speicher (American history, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago) examines the spiritual lives and convictions of radical abolitionist women of the 19th century who rejected the repressive features of the Christianity of their day. She explores the dimensions of their evolving faith, which was critical in shaping their decisions and actions, and highlights the leadership that these women exercised within the antislavery community.
