Margaret Fell was a vigorous, outspoken, and authoritative first generation co-leader with George Fox over the first fifty years of Quakerism. The book probes Fell's public and domestic roles, her religious world view, and her practical work as a chief architect of the emerging Quaker church along with Fox. The family, social, economic, and intellectual facets of Fell's life draw out the complexity of gender roles in religious movements in early modern England.
