Book Excerpt! Where Are the Women? (introduction)

In this bold book, Sarah Tyson revamps the feminist reclamation project to redress not merely exclusion, but all manners of exclusive inclusion. Whether you have never thought of, are inclined not to think of, or are enthusiastic about the thought of Sojourner Truth in the same philosophical frame as Diotima or Socrates, you should read this book. 

~David Kazanjian, author of The Brink of Freedom: Improvising Life in the Nineteenth-Century Atlantic World
