No aspect of the 1978 rebellion has been so neglected as that of the women's role in the tumult of that year. The Women of 1798 addresses this neglect - bringing a new light to bear on the subject and creating an accurate account of the women of 1798. The conclusions of the ten scholars, working from diverse and complementary disciples, combine to present the complexity of the subject and to show the women in the many roles, not alone as a symbol, model, victim and observer but as activist and combatant in political cause.
