Margaret Fuller, A Woman Before Her Time
Margaret Fuller, 1810 – 1850, was a driving intellectual force in the second quarter of the nineteenth century and essential to the transcendentalist movement that dominated intellectual thought of the period. She was a pioneering woman that rightly may be called “America’s First Feminist.”
She was passionately committed to the education of women and to the improvement of their status in society. She collaborated with leaders of American Intellectual Society and showed herself to be the equal of any man. Her untimely death struck deep into the hearts of many and was national news.
