Quoting Matilda Written by Susan Savion

Quoting Matilda, by Susan Savion, presents a compilation of powerful quotes of a nineteenth-century suffragist and abolitionist who was also an advocate for the rights and sovereignty of Native Americans. They honored her by adopting her into the Wolf Clan of the Mohawks. Savion brings to life the words of this steadfast social activist, writer, speechmaker, editor, and head of the National Woman’s Association. She knew the history of women in religion back to ancient mother goddesses and would not compromise with those who wanted to combine religion and government. Her liberal attitudes led to her being sidelined, but she went on to write her magnum opus, Woman, Church and State. Her defense of feminist principles shines through in the fourteen Oz books that she encouraged her son-in-law L. Frank Baum to write.

Matilda Joslyn Gage’s progressive actions for social justice and women’s rights established her as a prominent figure in the movement. Her integrity in matters of social justice and passion for improving the lot of all who were downtrodden would not allow her to compromise her strong opinions based on meticulous research.  Thus, this leading advocate for justice became purposely lost to history.

Matilda Joslyn Gage was a passionate advocate for women’s rights and a champion of women’s abilities in every walk of life. The term “The Matilda Effect” was applied to women who received less credit for their work than was due them. Her progressive actions for social justice established her as a leader in the movement. Savion resurrects the contributions, compassion, and wisdom of Gage through Matilda’s own words and a succinct narrative arranged by topic.

“This was a great, quick read and refresher about the women’s rights movement. It gave me even more respect for all the women who came before and their life’s work of ensuring that women had a political voice and therefore independence in future generations,” Amazon user Julia Fesko writes in a review.

Quoting Matilda is a wealth of wisdom and inspiration from a woman who dedicated her life to the fight for the rights of all women and minorities.
