Jane Grey Swisshelm is a well-known journalist in mid-nineteenth century America who was very dedicated to the cause of women's rights throughout her career. She argued in her editorials that women have the right to their property and their children, to vote and run for office, and to receive equal pay for equal work. This book demonstrates that while she struggled in private to be a dutiful daughter, wife, mother, and housekeeper, she was able to transgress gender boundaries and place herself in the male world of commerce, journalism, and politics.
