Voices of the Angels
The New Thought Movement Was a Women's Movement
The New Thought Movement Was a Women’s Movement
New Thought as a religious movement was "made in America". The New Thought writers at the turn of the 20th century were predominantly women, and were students of one of the well known founders of the New Thought religious movement, Emma Curtis Hopkins. This New Thought Reader creates a literary home for nine respected New Thought women leaders of the times who were popular writers, teachers, and healers. Elizabeth Towne, Fannie James, Nona Brooks, Malinda Cramer, Annie Rix Militz, Dr. Emilie Cady, Ursula Gestefeld, Florence Scovel Shinn, and the New Thought poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox are represented herein. The New Thought Movement in its beginnings was a women’s movement. These women were Voices of the Angels heralding in a new era, active and supportive of the Suffragettes, the abolition of slavery, and social changes that included humane child labor laws. Their writings are relevant to today, and are an inspiration to women and men alike.
