New Critical Studies on Early Quaker Women, 1650-1800 takes a fresh look at archival and printed sources from England and America, elucidating why women were instrumental to the Quaker movement from its inception to its establishment as a transatlantic religious body. This authoritative volume, the first collection to focus entirely on the contributions of women, is a landmark study of their distinctive religious and gendered identities. The chapters connect three richly woven threads of Quaker women’s lives – Revolutions, Disruptions and Networks – by tying gendered experience to ruptures in religion across this radical, volatile period of history.
