Between 1830 and 1865, a very radical international women's movement rose and fell in the West; this is the first book to tell its story. Joyous Greetings recounts the lives and works of the heroic women who challenged the entire system of male supremacy in the United States, England, France, Germany and Sweden. Anderson's Book provides the lost roots to modern feminism and introduces us to a cast of forgotten women, with important implications for American and European history.
