Short biography
Catharine Esther Beecher was the oldest child in the remarkable Beecher family. She dedicated her life to campaigning for women's rights, including the rights to education and health -- especially physical fitness -- as well as for greater recognition of the importance of women in running the home and raising children. She founded the Hartford Female Seminary in Hartford, Connecticut in 1823 and other similar educational institutions in Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Iowa. She wrote an 1841 book on domestic economy that became a bestseller.
