Description

Sisters in Spirit: Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Influence on Early American Feminists explores how the thoughts of early American feminists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Matilda Joslyn Gage were influenced by the women of the Haudenosaunee in upstate New York. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Matilda Joslyn Gage, and Lucretia Mott had formed friendships with their Iroquois neighbours that enabled them to understand a world view far different, and in many ways superior, to the patriarchal one that existed at that time. This is the provocative and compelling history of their struggle to bring equality and dignity to all women, and the role played by the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) women who modeled the position women could occupy in society.
