On the cutting edge of feminist scholarship, Sally Roesch Wagner describes how women of the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy (the Haudenosuanee) inspired the revolutionary vision of early feminists by providing a model of empowered women. At a time when Euro-American women were under the authority of men in all areas of their lives, Haudenosaunee women possessed decisive political voice, control of their bodies and property, custody of the children they bore, satisfying work and a society virtually free of rape and domestic violence. The thinking of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Matilda Joslyn Gage became transformed through their involvement with their Indigenous neighbors in upstate New York. ISBN 9781570671210.
