Synopsis

The history of Alabama has been told, but most often in terms of white men and their politics and economics. A more complex story of the state emerges in these essays investigating the place of women and their relationship to race, class and gender issues. Examined are the roles of both black and white women as missionaries during Reconstruction, as reformers and suffrage leaders in the Progressive era, and as members of the state legislature in the 20th century.
