A pleasant volume by an abolitionist and women's rights activist about => how to raise and educate the women of tomorrow. Higher education, physical education, and industrial and technical training for Victorian women in a rapidly changing world are a few of the topics discussed.
In addition to being a prolific writer, Mary A. Livermore was a lifelong devotee of the women's suffrage movement, having stood as president of the Association for Advancement of Women, as well as the American Woman Suffrage Association. Her work for the U S. Sanitary Commission during the Civil War had inspired her to believe that giving women the vote would allow other social reforms, such as temperance, become reality.
