This essay, through the use of testimonies, memorials, judicial documents, legal works and literary texts, tries to demonstrate that, unlike what the dominant doctrine and ideology have handed down in an interested way, the contribution of women, both of slave than free, it was of fundamental importance in laying the foundations and for the affirmation of the abolitionist movement. White leaders of the abolitionist movement, albeit open-minded and progressive, have, at times unwittingly, clouded the role of women in claiming equal political and civil rights.

Abstract

This essay, through the use of testimonies, memorials, judicial documents, legal works and literary texts, tries to demonstrate that, unlike what the dominant doctrine and ideology have handed down in an interested way, the contribution of women, both of slave than free, it was of fundamental importance in laying the foundations and for the affirmation of the abolitionist movement. White leaders of the abolitionist movement, albeit open-minded and progressive, have, at times unwittingly, clouded the role of women in claiming equal political and civil rights.
