Dress rehearsal of 'Frances'; (in Edinburgh)

Scottish radical reformer from the 1820's - 40's

Created a commune in Tennessee which she named Nashoba (wolf)

to free slaves, liberate women, promote interacial love relationships

and while at it, ride horseback astride.

Later in life, she also promoted workers' rights
