Matilda Joslyn Gage, a 19th century women’s suffragist and a strong defender of the separation of church and state, is presented in Susan Savion’s newest book, “Quoting Matilda: The Words and History of a Forgotten Suffragist.” It celebrates suffragist Gage’s many societal contributions, inspiring spirit, and enduring wisdom by illuminating her most poignant words. Gage’s enlightening thoughts on a variety of subjects are supplemented by evocative historical photographs and insightful contextual annotations.
Gage was written out of history for her radical stance on pursuing rights for women. She bravely fought for the rights of citizenship that would give women equal standing with men. She boldly tested the law by attempting to cast a vote in 1871. Besides writing “Woman, Church and State,” she wrote many speeches and articles, including a series on the Iroquois. She was adopted into the Wolf Clan of the Mohawks and was named “Ka-ron-ien-ha-wi” (Sky Carrier).
In the book, Gage’s quotes are categorized by topic, namely, slavery, women’s rights, death, religion, and sixteen others. Savion wrote the book in this easy-to-read format to serve as a valuable gift book or reference for students and all who are interested in women’s suffrage history.
