Title

The Circular. Vol. 6, no. 22. August 16, 1869

Description

The Oneida Community, founded by John Humphrey Noyes, was a religiously based, socialist group of about 250, dedicated to living as one family and to sharing all property, work, and love. The Community disbanded in 1880 and formed a corporation, Oneida Community Ltd which gained recognition for the tableware it produced. The Circular was created in 1851 and continued in several iterations until 1876, when the Community created a new periodical called the American Socialist.

This issue contains an article written by Jane Cunningham Croly, entitled "A Woman's Parliament." Croly, an author and journalist, created the Women's Parliament in 1856, and in 1869, formed the women's club, Sorosis to seek "collective elevation and advancement." She went on to found the General Federation of Women's Clubs in 1890. In this appeal, Croly issues and invitation to a meeting to be held in New York in October 1869 to discuss the formation of a "legislative body of women to represent women upon all subjects of vital interest to themselves and their children."

Croly mentions issues of concern including public education, prisons and reformatory schools, hygienic and sanitary reforms, female labor, the Department of Domestic Economy, dishonesty in public life, and the function of the women's parliament.
