Summary
* Includes selections from The Gleaner, her major work, and other publications As a novelist, essayist, dramatist, and poet, Judith Sargent Murray candidly and often humorously asserted her opinions about the social and political conditions of women in late eighteenth-century America. As a committed feminist, she urged American women to enter a 'new era in female history', yet published her own writings under a man's name in the hopes of more widely disseminating her ideas
