This book is the first biography of nineteenth-century magazine editor and reformer Charlotte Smith. Based on years of research, and previously untapped sources, it shows both why she should be remembered and why she was forgotten. Her story is quintessentially American: this daughter of Irish immigrants, despite having only a grade-school education and supporting two children alone, became a force to be reckoned with, first in journalism and then in reform. Her first periodical, the "Inland Monthly", was doubly rare: edited by a woman but not a women's magazine; and a profitable venture, bringing a large sum when sold.

Who is Charlotte Smith and why should we know about her?

Charlotte Smith was many things: entrepreneur (blockade runner during the Civil War); author; editor of 3 magazines; founder of the Women's National Industrial League as well as at least 4 other large national women's organizations; and, as one of our first important female lobbyists, she was responsible for the passage of about 50 bills.

She was particularly interested in helping women inventors, equal pay for women and other women's labor issues. She was a proponent of the reform and semi-legalization of prostitution. She pushed for a form of worker's compensation and unemployment insurance and proposed an early form of the CDC (Center for Disease Control). This is all the more amazing when you consider that she did most of her work in the late 1800's and very early 1900's.

Along the way, she stepped on a lot of powerful toes at a time when misogyny was deeply rooted in American institutions. She also did NOT focus on the fight for women's suffrage. These two facts have doomed her life's story to languish amongst other forgotten but important historical figures.

Until now.

Autumn Stanley has done some amazing detective work in piecing together this remarkable woman's life from public records. Despite the lack of private writings, Ms. Stanley has also given us a credible picture of a brilliant, complicated and driven woman who was more successful in public life than her private one.

This book should be required reading for any course on important women in American history!

Charlotte Odlum Smith [1840-1917] - a nationally acclaimed magazine editor/publisher, founder of Women's unions, an early proponent of equal pay for equal work, labor statistician and more - should have a prominent place in American History. We are truly fortunate that author Autumn Stanley, in RAISING MORE HELL AND FEWER DAHLIAS, has pulled Charlotte from the shadows and cast a bright light on her achievements. Ms. Stanley's thorough research is presented in a clear and concise voice ... a voice that rings with great respect for the truth, for her subject, and for feminism.

Autumn Stanley has rescued for us one of the nearly forgotten foremothers of U.S. feminist history. During the Civil War, Charlotte Smith ran the blockade and, along with her mother, supplied nursing services in Memphis for the Union army and its supporters. Later, in two of her three magazines, Smith worked vigorously for equal pay for equal work and strongly lobbied Congress for laws protecting women. In her support for equal pay for women, her understanding and influence equalled the muckraking novelists like Theodore Dreiser and Frank Norris who connected how starvation wages for ordinary work forced women into prostitution. She investigated the minimum cost of living for a single woman to show how survival was impossible on a woman's weekly wage. Her understanding and sympathy for prostitutes and her early investigative reporting was noteworthy and in advance of its time.

Smith, well known in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, was ignored until now by all American nineteenth century historians and even by Second-Wave feminists. Lucky for us, Autumn Stanley has revived her history.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! I teach high schoolers, whose idea of the world can sometimes look like "twas ever thus"--well, guess what, 'twasn't--and I'm thinking of adding RMH&FD to their biographies list. Charlotte Smith was one of the trailblazers opening up the territory of what being a woman could and should be, a territory that needs still further exploration. Aside from doing such amazing things as running Civil War blockades with medicine and food and publishing a series of successful general interest magazines, Charlotte was one of the first (and most effective) female lobbyists in the areas of women's wages, working conditions, employment rights, and food safety.
Her personal story is one of dauntless courage, self-invention, family struggle, and refusal to accept the various "No's!" dictating proper paths for 19th century women.
The author has brought a singular and fascinating woman to our attention in a page-turning and historically accurate biography. Highly recommended!
