The Theme of Education of Women in "The Revolution," 1868-1870.
Butcher, Patricia Smith
A feminist newspaper, "The Revolution," published between 1868 and 1870 filled a void in the popular press of the time, proclaiming the necessity of equal rights for women in all areas of life. Owned by Susan B. Anthony and edited by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the paper repeatedly emphasized the importance of education of women. Four major themes were stressed: the necessity of opening men's colleges to women, the failure of wealthy women to fund women's colleges, the need for professional education of women, and the need for equal pay for women teachers.
