Political women in the early United States: International Women's Day lecture @ National Library of Scotland | Scotland | United Kingdom

Could women be political before they got the vote? ‘Yes’, says Catherine Allgor, Director of Education at the Huntington Library and noted scholar of women and politics. In the new capital of the United States during the early republic, white ruling class women borrowed heavily from English court culture to further their families’ political aims. In doing so, they built the structure that would support the United States’ future as a democratic nation-state.
