A landmark work of women's history originally published in 1967,
Gerda Lerner's best-selling biography of Sarah and Angelina Grimke
explores the lives and ideas of the only southern women to become
antislavery agents in the North and pioneers for women's rights.
This revised and expanded edition includes two new primary
documents and an additional essay by Lerner. In a revised
introduction Lerner reinterprets her own work nearly forty years
later and gives new recognition to the major significance of Sarah
Grimke's feminist writings.
