Abstract:

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.
