Chapter Six, titled “Suffrage Newspapers,” gives a concise overview of two contrasting suffrage newspapers, The Revolution, run by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and the more moderate Woman’s Journal associated with Lucy Stone and Henry Blackwell. It contains examples of material from both: A Feb. 5, 1868 Revolution editorial on “Infanticide and Prostitution” by Stanton, and Julia Ward Howe’s 1870 editorial, “Salutatory,” from the first issue of the Woman’s Journal.
