Abstract
This paper examines the involvement of American women in the American Society of Friends of Russian Freedom in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. With prominent founding members like Alice Stone Blackwell and Julia Ward Howe, this paper questions the personal and political motivations that led these women to be open supporters of Russian nihilism and Russian revolutionaries on the eve of the 1905 Revolution. Through an examination of the organization’s publication Free Russia, personal letters and accounts, and contemporary images of the Russian empire, this paper seeks to uncover the types of connections these former abolitionists, suffragists, and social reformers believed to exist between America and Russia.
