Catharine Beecher, Woman's Suffrage and Woman's Profession ( Hartford, Conn., 1871). Perhaps too close for comfort for Catharine was the conversion to the suffrage cause of her youngest sister, Isabella Beecher Hooker. Twenty-two years younger than Catharine, Isabella represented a new generation of women. Although she grew up under the shadow of her famous sister, and attended the Hartford and Cincinnati schools, Isabella eventually rejected her sister's theory of social power for women in favor of female political power. Hooker's thoughts crystallized during the period in which Catharine Beecher's public career was drawing to a close. See Isabella Beecher Hooker, Shall Women Vote? A Matrimonial Dialogue (n.p., 1860) and A Mother's Letter to a Daughter on Woman Suffrage ( Hartford, Conn., 1870).
