Portrays eight women's rights advocates of the 19th and early 20th centuries: Caroline Norton, Elizabeth Blackwell, Florence Nightingale, Emily Davies, Josephine Butler, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Margaret Sanger, and Emma Goldman. Determined, foresightful leaders, the pioneers of contemporary feminism, these women fought unprecedented battles for women's rights in eight separate spheres of activity--law, the professions, employment, education, sexual morality, politics, birth control, and ideology.
