The Grimké Sisters from South Carolina: Pioneers for Women's Rights and Abolition

Gerda Lerner


A landmark work of women's history originally published in 1967, this biography of Sarah and Angelina Grimké explores the lives and ideas of the only southern women to become antislavery agents in the North and pioneers for women's rights. This revised and expanded edition includes two new primary documents and an additional chapter. The Introduction interprets the work nearly forty years later and gives new recognition to the major significance of Sarah Grimke's feminist writings.

Keywords: women's history, Sarah Grimké, Angelina Grimké, southern women, feminist writings, antislavery agents, women's rights
