Margaret Fuller Presentation in Paris

Margaret Fuller Lecture 1 Dorothy Erlandson of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Paris, the European Unitarian Universalists, and The Democrats Abroad France Women’s Caucus graciously introduced me to speak on the extraordinary life and work of Transcendentalist and women’s rights advocate Margaret Fuller this past Monday evening. From 1844 to 1850, Margaret Fuller served as the first woman social and literary critic in New York as well as the first woman foreign and war correspondent in Europe for Horace Greeley’s New York Tribune. Her national and international bestseller, “Woman in the Nineteenth Century,” inspired the 1848 Women’s Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, New York. Margaret worked for the equality of women, African-Americans, Native Americans, and other oppressed minorities.
