Abstract or Summary
  • The women of the past ages have made little progress in literature, and many are those who have ascribed it to lack of talent which is evident in the gentler sex; but more agree with Eliza V. Farnham when she says, "I will yield to none in the grateful admiration of those pioneer struggles whose fruits we are now enjoying, in the partial emancipation of Women from the legal and social disabilities under which the sex has labored from the beginning. If the wife of the dissolute husband can hold in her right the means of saving her children from starvation and ignorance; if the ranks of self-supporting women find new and more remunerative fields open to them; if the Wronged Woman breathes a more human atmosphere of compassion, tenderness, and respect - healers, all, of the hurt she has suffered; if the society of our day realizes in its high need, the more fluent power of Woman to purify, inspire, and uplift it to higher motives and better regulated action; if the diviner tenderness of the feminine life is taking more distinct forms of potentiality over the selfishness and ferocity of former ages, we have to thank more than any other party or organization, the brave Women of our generation who have persistently striven for these objects, bearing meanwhile the inevitable reproach and contumely of such a reform, but never abandoning it." To such a degree have the women of past ages beer occupied in uplifting humanity generally, that only a few of the stars were able to shed their light broadcast over the land; but these few, who were destined by their example, to show the possibilities of the feminine mind, have left such works as will ever remain as monuments to their memories.
