I was stopped by her assertion that Elizabeth Miller was inspired by Seneca clothing to invent her reform dress promoted by Amelia Bloomer. Wagner is not a dress historian, and is clearly just looking at images of Seneca women There is some very interesting and enlightening material here, and it's worth a look for the citations. Wagner is not a dress historian, and is clearly just looking at images of Seneca women in long tunics, and leggings which tie above the knee.

She has no other evidence than proximity. That section called into question for me to what degree this author lost her critical eye, and fell into the easy temptation of looking for proof of her preconceptions. Again, there is plenty of solid evidence here of clear and genuine influences, but perhaps stretched too far in places, and I'd love to see a more rigorous scholar dig deeper.

I really wish I could give this book a higher rating. The material is absolutely fascinating and eye-opening. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in Native American history, women's studies, or American history.

Apr 02, Carrie rated it liked it. An odd little book - it's not all that well organized - but well-argued and researched with a great list of resources to add to my reading list. While Wagner digs deep to show the connection between Haudenosaunee governance and the rights sought by early suffragists, I do wish it went a little further in fairly examining the women it holds up as radical.

There is a kind of jumpiness to the book that feels like the result of cobbling together parts of different articles and research papers, but it is still fascinating material. One thing worth noting is that there was not just a Haudenosaunee influence on Seneca Falls and suffrage, but the book also claims an influence on the founding of the US government.

It feels like there is room for a lot more expansion on those topics, including looking at how their concepts of freedom were borrowed but left room for oppression. Dec 18, Sue rated it it was amazing. Elizabeth Cady Stanton has long been one of my heroes and people that I'd invite to that imaginary dinner party of fascinating people, but this book took it all to a new and amazing level.
