Margaret Fuller

Born this day in 1810: MARGARET FULLER (1810–1850), distinguished woman of letters, teacher, literary critic, journalist, Transcendentalist, brilliant conversationalist, critic, activist, the nation’s first feminist, and one of the intellectual prime movers of her day.

For free digital access to Fuller’s groundbreaking feminist work, Woman in the Nineteenth Century, go here.

To read about her in a U.S. textbook, you’re shit out of luck.
