Topic: Ezra Heywood


  
  Angela Fiducia Tilton Heywood
Heywood is methodical and moderate in his thought, arriving at his conclusions by the toil of intellect, she is quick and impulsive, arriving at her conclusions by the flash of intuition.
Heywood's confidence in her is implicit, and the trustful reliance by which she holds her children to herself in close companionship (I speak of little Psyche and Angelo of whom I see most, Vesta and Hermes being at school in Providence) is evidence of her mother love.
Angela Fiducia Tilton Heywood was born in Deerfield, New Hampshire to Daniel and Lucy Tilton.

Ezra Heywood was already a veteran social reformer when Tucker first encountered him at a meeting of the New England Labor Reform League (NELRL) in the summer of 1872.

Heywood practiced a politics of confrontation with the authorities; Tucker did not cringe in the face of authority but he did take fewer risks with his own freedom in the assertion of his beliefs.

This long-delayed issuance of Heywood's 1873 essay, Uncivil Liberty: An Essay to Show the Injustice and Impolicy of Ruling Women Without Her Consent, has been done in the effort to acquaint a contemporary audience with some idea of what those of a century ago thought was the primary issue.
Heywood's treatise is far from being simply a plea for the extension of the right to vote to women in national elections, though this seemed to be the main matter on the agenda over a century ago.
Heywood wrote somewhat more emotionally than Walker, and with more than a touch of the melodramatic sentiment characteristic of the propaganda of the early temperance movement 40 or more years before his time.

Anthony Comstock's crusade against vice and obscenity was to become their most noted battle front, with Ezra Heywood, who was arrested for the publication of his essay, Cupid's Yoke.
An ardent feminist as well (and married to a strident feminist, Angela Heywood), he believed that men had reduced women to such socioeconomic dependence that, in order to live, women were forced to chose between selling their labor for next to nothing or selling their bodies into unwanted unions.
This Heywood believed to be an insufferable injustice and devoted his writings to free love as a form of freedom from another type of slavery, as he explained in Uncivil Liberty as well as in Cupid's Yoke.

 The Free Expression Policy Project
This holistic approach, "combining visionary and radical politics with notions of sexual liberty and freedom of expression,"3 was promoted by such author-activists as Ezra Heywood, the free-love crusader, and Victoria Woodhull, the notorious stockbroker, suffragist, publisher, and self-promoter who ran for president in 1872.
Horowitz’s distinctions among these four strands of 19th century sexual thought are somewhat artificial, and one category tends to blend into the other.
The result was that, by century’s end, previously available knowledge about sexuality -- including in particular, female sexuality -- was suppressed through obscenity law, and freethinkers like Ezra Heywood, whose writings were far from sexually explicit, went to jail.
