central to the endorsement of woman’s right to equality. 45 Attachment to domesticated womanhood, a point on which W. J. Fox or W. B. Adams [II, 2], both fiercely anti-clerical, differed from mainstream Unitarians, did not preclude a concern for personal fulfilment. Women’s intellect and judgements were respected within their ranks.
