    They were not particularly concerned with working-class women, and did not label themselves as feminists (a term coined in 1895). They were mostly concerned with injustices that they had experienced on a personal basis.

    a social planner, Wright stands apart from many of her contemporaries for being particularly concerned with the plight of the working class. She advocated abolition, universal education, birth control and equal rights for women.

    Social Planners

    One consequence of the Enlightenment’s emphasis on the rational is the impulse towards social planning. The social planners believed it to be their duty to plan and order the world around them. The Anglo-American social reformer Frances Wright (1795–1852) attempted to model this belief when she set up her own experimental community, Nashoba, dedicated to ensuring the emancipation of slaves.

    “Our mercantile and uncertain speculation of ‘damages’, – the wonderful indecency of our diverce trials, – the incredible fact that the woman accused is allowed no direct defence, and cannot appear by counsel on such occasions, – the loth and reluctant admission of the right of a mother to her inhant children, – are alike odious and incomprehensible.”

    Caroline Norton’s triumphs paved the way for more substantial reforms in the late 19th century. But the law remained mostly on the fathers’ side, retaining the principles of inequality between women and men.

    When they returned to New York, they decided to organize a convention to which they invited women suffragists and interested men. The aim was to discuss issues related to equality in education, marriage and property laws.

Y., on Wednesday and Thursday, the 19th and 20th of July, current; commencing at 10 o’clock am. During the first day the meeting will be exclusively for women, who are earnestly invited to attend. The public generally are invited to be present on the second day, when Lucretia Mott, of Philadelphia, and other ladies and gentlemen, will address the convention.
