Item Description...
Overview
Helen Barrett Montgomery (1861-1934) was a social reformer, a Baptist luminary, and a prominent intellectual of the American women's ecumenical missionary movement. In this definitive biography, Kendal Mobley analyzes the intellectual development of a fascinating woman and locates her in the context of her rapidly-changing times. Mobley explores Montgomery's early family influences, her education and spiritual development, and her relationship with other notable individuals of the era, including Susan B. Anthony. As Mobley points out, Montgomery believed that Christianity gave women equal spiritual and social status with men. Consequently, she saw "woman's work for woman" as the cutting edge of a global movement for women s emancipation.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Deserves a spot in any feminist biography collection  Jun 13, 2009
One person does not lead a revolution alone. "Helen Barrett Montgomery: The Global Mission of Domestic Feminism" is the biography of one of the major late nineteenth/early twentieth century feminists who helped bring women the vote and (gradually) be considered on equal footing to their male counterparts. A woman of faith, she did much to help her church on top of her social progress crusades. "Helen Barrett Montgomery" deserves a spot in any feminist biography collection.
 
Fascinating Biography and History  Feb 25, 2009
Dr. Mobley proves himself the foremost expert on the life of a most fascinating woman and the era in which she lived. His scholarly yet sensitive style captivates the reader with a story that educates, challenges, and inspires.

Helen Barrett Montgomery (1861-1934), raised in an Evangelical Christian Victorian family, never left those roots. Yet, in a time before women were even allowed to vote, she shaped her world, and ours.

From page 2: "She was a social reformer and the first woman elected to the school board in Rochester, NY. She was licensed to preach by Lake Avenue Baptist Church. She was the first woman elected president of the Northern Baptist Convention, and she is still the only Baptist woman to publish an original English translation of the New Testament. She was all of these and more, and yet she was also a Victorian wife and mother who would not accept speaking engagements that took her away from home until she had her husband's permission."

A window into a life that did not fit neatly into either of the female expectations of her day (one of traditional domesticity, the other of college-educated career life), but somehow combined the two, creating a new kind of 20th century woman.

This book provides an honest and thorough look at Helen Barrett Montgomery's life, without interpretative bias, and with a style and depth that naturally plunges the reader into a desire to analyze and synthesize, and a hunger to know more. A 5-star read.
