Summary
"Did nineteenth-century American women have money of their own? To answer this question, Women, Money, and the Law looks at the public and private stories of individual women within the context of American culture, assessing how legal and cultural traditions affected women's lives, particularly with respect to class and racial differences, and analyzing the ways in which women were involved in economic matters." "Joyce Warren has uncovered a vast, untapped archive of legal documents from the New York Supreme Court that had been expunged from the official record. By exploring hundreds of court cases involving women litigants between 1845 and 1875 - women whose stories had, in effect, been erased from history - and by studying the lives and works of a wide selection of nineteenth-century women writers, Warren has found convincing evidence of women's involvement with money."--Jacket
