Item description for The Grimké Sisters from South Carolina: Pioneers for Woman's Rights and Abolition by Gerda Lerner...

Overview
The only Southern white women ever to become leading abolitionists, Sarah and Angelina Grimke encountered many obstacles in pursuing their anti-slavery work, the least of which was their gender. Women's historian Gerda Lerner tells the compelling story of these determined sisters and the contributions they made to the anti-slavery and women's rights movements.

Publishers Description
The only Southern white women ever to become leading abolitionists, Sarah and Angelina Grimke encountered many obstacles and leapt many hurdles in pursuing their anti-slavery work. Their greatest accomplishment was overcoming the ubiquitous prejudices of society in regard to women. Indeed, they were the first women to take to the public platform and the first to assert women's rights. In The Grimke Sisters from South Carolina, Gerda Lerner, herself a leading historian and pioneer in women's studies, tells the compelling history of these determined sisters and the inroads they made for women and blacks alike. From their wealthy upbringing in Charleston, South Carolina, the societal restraints that kept them from higher education, and their utter contempt of slavery, to their conversion to the Quaker religion, and monumental achievements at the podium and with the pen, Lerner illuminates the lasting contributions of the Grimke sisters, as well as the important role played by women in the anti-slavery movement."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Grimké Sisters from South Carolina: Pioneers for Woman's Rights and Abolition?

Recommended read  Dec 30, 1999
I read an earlier (1970-something?) publication of this work, and really enjoyed it. The sisters were presented as powerful thinkers who struggled with the issues of their day. The title is right on, they were pioneers for women's rights, as well as influential abolitionists. I'm glad that they were presented as whole people, with doubts and questions and problems, too.

It was an easy ready, but I didn't feel like the author was talking down to me. The book is highly recommended.
