Suffragist, lecturer, eugenicist, businesswoman, free lover, and the first woman to run for president of the United States, Victoria C. Woodhull (1838?1927) has been all but forgotten as a leading nineteenth-century feminist writer and radical. Selected Writings of Victoria Woodhull is the first multigenre, multisubject collection of her materials, giving contemporary audiences a glimpse into the radical views of this nineteenth-century woman who advocated free love between consensual adults and who was labeled ?Mrs. Satan? by cartoonist Thomas Nast. Woodhull?s texts reveal the multiple conflicting aspects of this influential woman, who has been portrayed in the past as either a disreputable figure or a brave pioneer. ø This collection of letters, speeches, essays, and articles elucidate some of the lesser-known movements and ideas of the nineteenth century. It also highlights, through Woodhull?s correspondence with fellow suffragist Lucretia Mott, tensions within the suffragist movement and demonstrates the changing political atmosphere and role of women in business and politics in the late nineteenth century. ø With a comprehensive introduction contextualizing Woodhull?s most important writing, this collection provides a clear lens through which to view late nineteenth-century suffragism, labor reform, reproductive rights, sexual politics, and spiritualism.

Francis Galton is said to have founded eugenics with an 1864 magazine article. But a single article does not make a movement and Galton, by his own admission, did little to promote the idea before 1901. This book demonstrates that eugenists have given us an inaccurate history of their movement, assigning credit to Galton, the eminent half-cousin of Charles Darwin, when the real credit belongs to a woman who was perhaps the most radical nineteenth-century American feminist.That woman was Victoria Woodhull, the first woman to run for U.S. President and, with her sister, the first woman stockbroker on Wall Street. This book contains all her major speeches and writings on eugenics, showing that she was the first of either sex to take to the road and, in hundreds of speeches across the U.S., champion the idea of creating a perfected humanity by breeding perfect children. She even beat Galton in his own land, moving to England in 1876 and introducing eugenics there.Woodhull was not a shy about her role. The title for this book comes from the headline of a 1912 London newspaper article proclaiming her Lady Eugenist. In 1927, shortly before she died, the New York Times would carry an article in which she praised eugenic sterilization and claimed to have advocated that fifty years ago in my book Marriage of the Unfit.

Victoria Woodhull kandidierte 1872 als erste Frau für das Präsidentenamt der USA. Als unorthodoxe Feministin und Sozialistin, Anhängerin der freien Liebe und erste weibliche Wall-Street-Brokerin wurde sie eine zeitlang zur Anführerin der radikalen amerikanischen Frauenbewegung. Sie war eine der wenigen Feministinnen des 19. Jahrhunderts, die nicht aus einem bürgerlichen Mittelstandsmilieu kamen. Ihr ging es weniger um den Kampf gegen diskriminierende Strukturen als darum, die Frauen selbst zu mehr politischer Verantwortung und Initiative aufzufordern. Woodhull wollte keine »Lobbyarbeit« für Fraueninteressen machen, sondern für eine freiheitliche Gesellschaft insgesamt eintreten. Neben dem Wahlrecht setzte sie sich vor allem für »soziale Freiheit« ein, forderte die Abschaffung der Ehegesetze, Gefängnisreformen, bessere Schulbildung.

Stories about Victoria Woodhull and Tennessee Claflin claimed more newspaper space than any other event at the time except the Civil War. And if two women did today what they did then, it would still make headlines. They wrote and lectured about free love, socialism, labor struggles, mysticism and especially, women's rights. Given how little the world has changed on these issues, this selection of their writings very much relates to our contemporary struggles. And Arlene's biographical sketches indicate that Woodhull and Claflin also lived their politics, struggling for a meaningful way to live in a hostile world while trying to change it--as 100 years later, we do now.

Tempest-Tossed is the first full biography of the passionate, fascinating youngest daughter of the “Fabulous Beecher” family—one of America’s most high-powered families of the nineteenth century. Older sister Harriet Beecher Stowe was the author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Brother Henry Ward Beecher was one of America’s most influential ministers, and sister Catherine Beecher wrote pivotal works on women’s rights and educational reform. And then there was Isabella Beecher Hooker—“a curiously modern nineteenth-century figure.” She was a leader in the suffrage movement, and a mover and shaker in Hartford’s storied Nook Farm neighborhood and salon. But there is more to the story—to Isabella’s character—than that. Isabella was an ardent Spiritualist. In daily life, she could be off-putting, perplexing, tenacious, charming. Many found her daunting to get to know and stay on comfortable terms with. Her “wild streak” was especially unfavorable in the eyes of Hartford society at the time, which valued restraint and duty. In her latest book, Susan Campbell brings her own unique blend of empathy and unbridled humor to the story of Harriet’s younger half-sister. Tempest Tossed reveals Isabella’s evolution from orthodox Calvinist daughter, wife, and mother, to one of the most influential players in the movement for women’s suffrage, where this unforgettable woman finally gets her proper due.
