Mary E. Corey’s new book Political Life and Times of Matilda Joslyn Gage (Paramount Market Publishing, Inc, 2019), looks at the life of advocate, activist, intellectual, and leader, Matilda Joslyn Gage.
From her first convention speech in 1852 to the publication of her magnum opus, Woman, Church and State, her speeches, writings, and advocacy were and remain an education in women’s history. Gage’s greatest contribution to the women’s movement rests on her scholarship, based on careful research, well documented and written in the best scholarly manner of its time.
