An early look at the feminist movement, from the inside. Examines the social concepts of "superfluous" women, i.e., those not devoted to married life, and advocates for the emancipation, practical, physical, and higher education of women outside of family life. Includes some capsule biographies of some influential women of the 19th-century, e. g. Catherine Beecher or Clara Barton.
