University of Illinois Press, 2007 - 256页
The definitive collection of speeches and writings of one of America's most important social reformers

Thought to be the most famous woman in America at the time of her death, Frances E. Willard was best known for leading America's largest women's organization (the Woman's Christian Temperance Union), which shaped both domestic and international opinion on major political, economic, and social reform issues. Including Willard's representative speeches and pub-lished writings on everything from temperance and women's rights to the new labor movement and Christian socialism, "Let Something Good Be Said" is the first volume to collect the messages that inspired a generation of women to activism.
