Hi All--
I have a *very *strong feeling that this title might have been reviewed in *The
Women's Review of Books* fairly recently (rather than the NYTBR); I tried
locating a cite using JSTOR with no success, although Lisa Tetrault had a
review of a pair of different (but related) titles in 2012 which may be of

Purists vs. Pragmatists
Lucretia Mott's Heresy: Abolition and Women's Rights in Nineteenth-Century
America by Carol Faulkner
Fighting Chance: The Struggle over Woman Suffrage and Black Suffrage in
Reconstruction America by Faye Dudden
Review by: Lisa Tetrault
The Women's Review of Books, Vol. 29, No. 3 (May / June 2012), pp. 11-13

Note that JSTOR does not index WRB later than 2012.

Note also that my filing system is um, faulty (that's a polite way to put
it), which means that while I would probably have the issue featuring such
a review, I would not be able to find it in a timely fashion.
