Description

The Reverend Olympia Brown was the first woman to be ordained by the Northern Universalist Denomination. In 1866 she helped found the American Equal Rights Association and in that same year called for a convention in November that led to the formation of the New England Woman Suffrage Association. She was elected president of the state Woman Suffrage Association and served for the next 34 years.
These memoirs are loosely-organized first-hand reminiscences by one of the early key figures in the movement. Of particular note is her account of Victoria Woodhull and the suffragists.
