This work offers readers an opportunity to examine the establishment, growth, and evolution of slavery in the United States as it impacted women, including those enslaved and free, African American and white, wealthy and poor, northern and southern. The primary documents, including newspaper articles, broadsides, cartoons, pamphlets, speeches, photographs, memoirs, and editorials, are organized thematically and represent cultural, political, religious, economic, and social perspectives on this dark and complex period in American history.
