The sisters felt that they were being attacked for being women and abolitionists. It was Sarah, rather than Angelina, who should be credited with developing the first comprehensive feminist argument presented by an American woman. She was restricted, however, by limitations imposed on her by her lack of formal education. Many abolitionists were disturbed by the intrusion of the women's rights issue upon their cause. This period, as the chapter recounts, took its toll on the health of the sisters as they toured extensively spreading their cause.
