As ly announced, each week, a woman who was a pillar with the fight towards gender equality, will be highlighted on our website each week. Fuller was an influential early feminist whose writings had a profound impact on later women suffrage campaigners, such as Susan B.
Her father was a lawyer and, for eight years, a representative of Congress, enabling him to move in influential political circles. Margaret was educated at home and also at the Boston Lyceum for Young Ladies She was a voracious reader and became well-known for being one of the best read people in New England. She became the first women to have access to Harvard library, when researching a book on the Great Lakes region.
She also became fluent in the classics and several modern languages.
Her thirst for knowledge was such that she felt little in common with other girls her own age. She was less interested in more conventional pursuits expected of women, Fuller was hopeful of continuing her studies and beginning a career in journalism. However, after the unexpected death of her father from Cholera inFuller found herself in a position of having to look after her family. To supplement her income she took a job as a teacher in Boston and later Providence, Rhode Island.
InFuller moved the family to Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. The Transcendentalists were an influential philosophical movement in the Nineteenth Century.
They believed in personal transformation and looking beyond religious dogmas. Fuller accepted the position and became a leading figure within the Transcendentalist movement. With growing confidence as a writer, Fuller also returned to themes of female emancipation and the role of women in society. Let her work as she will. Let us have one creative energy, one incessant revelation. Let it take what form it will, and let us not bind it by the past to man or woman, black or white. It was a meteoric rise for Fuller. She frequently broke gender barriers, taking roles rarely allowed for women.
She had a very strong personality — contemporaries say she had great self-confidence and self-belief in her own capacities. However, she was quick to anger and with a short temper. Her personality could polarise opinion of her. As she herself admits. She met leading literary figures of the day; she also met the Italian revolutionary Giuseppe Mazzini.
Inshe secretly married Giovanni Angelo Ossoli, a former marquis disinherited by his family because of his support for the revolutionary Mazzini. Their relationship was kept secretive for several months, though after the birth of their child — Angelo Eugene Philip Ossoli, they became less so. Fuller worked as a nurse, whilst her husband fought. Inthe couple took a boat back to America. But, on July 19,the returning ship hit a sandbank. The ship was abandoned amidst crashing waves and Fuller was never seen again.
She had ly written of feeling bad omens about her fate.
Her last manuscript on the Roman republic was lost. After her death, a short biography was published, which proved popular. Fuller was interested in a range of social topics. In particular, she believed women had a right to a full education. She felt a complete education would enable women to be more independent and enable a wider horizon of possibilities than the social conventions of the Nineteenth Century allowed. She also abhorred slavery and felt the Native Americans had been unfairly treated.
She was good friends with Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emerson admired his vivacious friend, though Fuller criticized the Transcendentalist concern with personal transformation because she felt the necessity for social reform. Most of us know the story of Susan B. However, do you know who inspired her?
After her death, a short biography was published, which proved popular Fuller was interested in a range of social topics. Citation: Margaret Fuller biography.Edgard full figured looking for her equal
