Front Cover
Yale University Press, 1992 - Antislavery movements - 248 pages
"Women and Sisters" tells the story of the abolitionist leaders who were also feminists, joined in a double crusade to liberate women and slaves. Jean Fagan Yellin employs a subtle semiotic analysis of the texts and graphic images that carried the messages of these feminist abolitionists successfully -- until their icons were taken over and subverted by the patriarchal elite. -- From publisher's description.
