Short Historical Essay

Many people assume that the women's rights movement first began during the abolitionist movement of the 19th century. Feminist thought began earlier, during the Colonial and Revolutionary period in America.

During the early years of this nation's founding, women and a few good men believed women should be given equal rights. Many argued for women's rights to be included in the new laws being drafted to govern the land. Some women wrote stirring essays and magazine articles pleading their cause. This short essay discusses the efforts of Abigail Adams, Judith Sargent Murray, and how the writings of Mary Wollstonecraft influenced feminist thought in Early America.

This brief essay includes academic citations end notes with resources for further study.
