Sisters in Spirit: Iroquois Influence on Early Feminists

Sisters in Spirit: Iroquois Influence on Early Feminists - Sally Roesch Wagner An odd little book - it's not all that well organized - but well-argued and researched with a great list of resources to add to my reading list. While Wagner digs deep to show the connection between Haudenosaunee governance and the rights sought by early suffragists, I do wish it went a little further in fairly examining the women it holds up as radical. The influence is there, yes, but many of them (including Anthony and Stanton) held indefensible views on race that are worthy of interrogation.
