Beverly Zink-SawyerISBN: 0664226159;
Book DescriptionThe women's rights movement in nineteenth-century America has primarily been interpreted as a secular movement. Often ignored is the prominent role of religious leaders and religious ideology in support of the movement for women?s rights. In From Preachers to Suffragists, Beverly Zink-Sawyer examines the lives of three nineteenth-century clergywomen?Antoinette Brown Blackwell, Olympia Brown, and Anna Howard Shaw?who saw their calling to the suffrage movement as an extension of their call to ministry and left the parish to become leaders in the movement. In demonstrating the importance of these women?and of their religious rhetoric and theological leadership?Zink-Sawyer reclaims the religious roots of the suffragemovement and makes a major, even corrective, contribution to American history.
