Pennsylvania Abolition Society Papers, Series 5

Date created 1833-01-01 – 1870-01-01
Creators Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society
Abstract Historians have long recognized the significance of the Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society, making these records very important. They shed light on some of the most vexing questions about the abolitionist movement, including whether women were able to participate on equal ground with men, the extent to which white abolitionists believed in full racial equality, whether the abolitionist movement truly changed from moral to political over time, and the extent to which women abolitionists drew on mainstream gender discourses to justify their participation.
