Why Margaret Fuller Matters

Who was Margaret Fuller? Fuller was a pioneering nineteenth-century American feminist, literary and social critic, and the first American woman to work as a foreign journalist. She was a contemporary of such notables as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Horace Greeley and Bronson Alcott.
The Barker Library is proud to be hosting a traveling display which includes a
a chronological telling Fuller's life and explains her views on women’s rights, education (especially female), class, slavery, American Indian rights, religion, and Transcendentalism.
This diplay was provided by the Margaret Fuller Bicentennial Committee and will run through March 8, 2011.
