Summary
"Out of the Shadows tells the stories of six enterprising Victorian women whose apparent ability to move between the realms of the dead and the living allowed them to cross rigid boundaries of gender and class, and to summon unique political voices. The clairvoyance of the Fox sisters from upstate New York inspired some of the era's best-known female suffrage activists and set off an international séance craze. Emma Hardinge Britten left behind a career on Broadway for the life of a "trance lecturer," whose oration on the death of Abraham Lincoln was celebrated by tens of thousands. The meteoric rise of Victoria Woodhull, born into poverty in Ohio, took her from childhood medium to Wall Street broker to America's first female presidential candidate. And Georgina Weldon, whose interest in spiritualism nearly saw her confined to an asylum, went on to become a favorite of the press and a successful campaigner against Britain's archaic lunacy laws. These extraordinary tales illuminate a radical history of female influence that has been -until now-confined to the dark."--
