CommentsThe only work of nonfiction by the popular Georgia-born novelist, Maria Jane McIntosh (1803-1878) best known for her pro-slavery response to Uncle Tom’s Cabin, The Lofty and the Lowly (1853). In Woman In America, McIntosh addresses the role of a woman in American society, adopting the conventional division between the political and social spheres of public life and assigning women control in the latter.
