This chapter describes how the political public was segregated by sex through much of American history. It discusses the masculinization of early American politics whereby women were excluded from the public sphere. The chapter also describes how women responded to this political exclusion by creating a prominent public domain of their own, a separate world of philanthropy and reform.

Keywords:   sex, American history, American politics, women, public sphere, philanthropy, reform
