But slowly other influences complicated her thinking. She believed that both men and women could use power and violence against each other, and she wanted feminists to recognize this. A field of lesbian desire appears, one that was contested, shared, and shaped by contributors and readers alike. Boards were set up in Louisiana, South Carolina and Florida that disqualified thousands of ballots for Tilden and certified ballots for Hayes even when the number of ballots exceeded the number of voters in a district.

There are many men who champion the suffragist movement, but the reality for most single women in New York City is either working in poverty and squalor or prostitution. There were similar debates about immigration and whether immigrants from certain countries were dangerous or might contaminate the body politic. The Portland Oregonian, December 4 I magine an America where scandal creates a media frenzy, feminists are vilified as man-haters, the Christian right calls all the shots, political groups are rife with infighting and the presidential election is decided in the Supreme Court. She died this week. Piercy homes in on Cornelius Vanderbilt throwing his money and weight around as the first great wave of European immigrants arrives; savvy businesswomen make their fortunes running bordellos and performing abortions; the women s rights movement coalesces, and Anthony Comstock launches his fanatically censorious crusade.
