Fredrika Bremer (1801-1865)

Frederika Bremer was an author and feminist who was born in Finland and grew up in Sweden. Bremer toured the United States for two years studying the influence of democracy on domestic life, women's status, and individual self-fulfillment. She visited U.S. prisons, schools, and factories, witnessed slave auctions, attended sessions of Congress, met with women's rights activists, and was befriended by the literati of New York and Boston. In 1853 she published her letters to her sister as The Homes of the New World: Impressions of America. This photograph has been retouched by painting.
