Summary

"With intense passion, labor reformers Grace Hutchins and Anna Rochester committed themselves to the cause of economic justice and to each other. Janet Lee traces Hutchins and Rochester's extraordinary ideological journey from Christianity to communism in this engaging joint biography, regendering the history of the intellectual left at the same time she shares the interwoven life stories of these remarkable women. This is a biography that explores the complex and multiple contexts that produced Hutchins and Rochester as political subjects and focuses on the tensions and contradictions of their public and private lives."--BOOK JACKET. "Lee has produced an invaluable addition to the study of women's history, a volume that will prove indispensable to scholars of history, gender studies, and the postmodern approach."--BOOK JACKET.
