Summary Women of the Republic views the American Revolution through women's eyes. The result of a seven-year search for women's diaries, letters, and legal records, Kerber describes women's participation in the war, evaluates changes in their education in the late eighteenth century, describes the novels and histories women read and wrote, and analyzes their status in law and society.
Contents The women's world of the early Republic -- "Empire of complacency": the inheritance of the enlightenment -- "Women invited to war": sacrifice and survival -- "What have I to do with politicks?": the meaning of female patriotism -- "She can have no will different from his": revolutionary loyalties of married women -- "Disabilities ... intended for her protection": the anti-republican implications of coverture -- "Domestic liberty": freedom to divorce -- "Why should girls be learnd or wise?" education and intellect in the early Republic -- "We own that ladies sometimes read": women's reading in the early Republic -- The republican mother: female political imagination in the early Republic.
