 Criticism--Fuller
Viewing Fuller's "The Great Lawsuit" as a act of textual transvestitism became more persuasive as I grappled with her complex and sometimes opaque arguments, and certainly was supported by Edgar Allen Poe's view of her as a gender maverick (he divided humanity into three classes: "men, women and Margaret Fuller").
Fuller distinguished the ideal of American gender equality from the universal enfranchisement of the French Revolution by condemning the violence and upheaval associated with the radically democratic Jacobins.
Fuller's performance of civic equality was an explicit re-rendering of social laws: Woman was equal, Woman belonged in the public sphere, and those who blocked Woman's ascent blocked the realization of the City on a Hill and the maturation of Revolutionary ideals.

 Men, Women and Margaret Fuller
Margaret was disparagingly called a ‘bluestocking,’ meaning that she was perceived to be a mannish, pedantic intellectual—far from feminine.
Margaret, as she later insisted on being called, and not Sarah Margaret, was much loved by both parents, grandparents and other family members; however, since she was extraordinarily bright her father deemed that at age three, she should start to be educated.
Eventually Margaret’s parents realized that there were problems, and so, at the age of eleven, she was sent to a girls’ school where she would be taught to be less competitive, outspoken, candid, and not to speak her mind so boldly.

 Margaret Fuller
Margaret Fuller--she was called Ossoli long after the time we are concerned with, in a foreign land and amid foreign associations--Margaret Fuller died July 16th, 1850.
Margaret Fuller did justice to the character of Fourier, admired his enthusiasm, honored his devotion, acknowledged the terrible nature of the evils he gave the study of a life-time to correct, and paid an unstinting tribute to the disinterested motives that impelled him; but with his scheme for refashioning society she had no sympathy.
Margaret Fuller's loyalty to principles was proof against bad taste; which is saying a good deal, for many a reformer is of opinion that blunders are worse than crimes, and that vulgarity is more offensive than wickedness.

 Margaret Fuller, the American Minerva by James W. Tuttleton   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Margaret Fuller was one of the most distinguished women of her time; her learning had no equal amongst her women contemporaries; and she was at the center of several lively international movements in her time.
Fuller was in favor of these liberal causes, but it seems clear to me that abolitionism, the rights of the Indian, and the condition of women at Sing-Sing were, for her, merely interchangeable elements in what was then called “The Sisterhood of Reforms.” All liberals supported them.
Margaret, of course, was different from many modern feminists: she considered herself married to Ossoli and intended to support him and live with him in America in a traditional family arrangement.

 Heath Anthology of American LiteratureSarah Margaret¬†Fuller - Author Page
But Fuller saw teaching as a means, not an end, and she keenly felt her isolation from the intellectual circles in Boston, to which she returned in December, 1838.
Fuller’s arguments for full equality of opportunity, for abolishing stereotyped gender roles—“there is no wholly masculine man,” she wrote, “no purely feminine woman”—and for women themselves to represent their own best interests may sound strikingly apt to today’s readers.
In the hands of such ambivalent editors, Fuller came to be regarded as, at best, a serio-comic footnote in American literary history, her style that—in the words of a prominent twentieth-century critic—of a headstrong “galloping filly.” The emergence of a renewed women’s movement in the 1960s helped revive interest in Fuller’s work.
