Title: The construction of women’s Quaker identity. A case study: Margaret Fell

Group publication title:

Token

Abstract:

The article analyses the writings of Margaret Fell, the co-founder together with her husband George Fox of the Society of the Friends of God, commonly called the Quakers, in order to show that the contribution of dissenting women to the construction of the religious identity of the society was no less important than that of male members. As the corpus is mostly composed of letters, the article shows how the woman writer, in addition to contributing to the society’s collective identity, also constructs her multiple individual identity, which is not monolithic but multi-faced, as it varies according to the role of the recipient of her letters and the relationship between addressor and addressee. Margaret Fell’s writings can also be considered a form of autobiographical self-representation as she speaks with both a public and a private voice, thus revealing different facets of her personality.
