AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Examines the nature of Mary Gilmore's faith and beliefs. Strauss argues that Gilmore "had faith in life itself as an active principle in the universe; she believed positively, if by no means uncritically, in the power of human action to make the world a better place; she believed that women must be enabled to play their role in such action; and she believed in the power of words to inspire such action" (64).
