Plagiarism issues[edit]

Some of the information in this article is copied from Lyman Beecher Stowe’s, Saints, Sinners, and Beechers, I will try to properly attribute these statements, as part of a general revision and expansion. Pvjoanis (talk) 14:47, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

Revision[edit]

I have completed the necessary research to amend this article and will put in one sourced edit to revise the content, this will probably be followed up with a few minor revisions. I was not able to find reliable sources for all of the content, some of which is speculative. Pvjoanis (talk) 22:11, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

While my most recent edit substantially revised the content of this article, I did not delve into Isabella’s relationship with Victoria Woodhull, the Beecher – Tilton Affair, or spiritualism et hoc genus omne. These three subjects could provide content for future additions. In addition, some evidence seems to point to Isabella Hooker’s historical significance being the reuniting of the divided women’s movement. However, I have not included this as I think it would be original research. Could anyone refute this argument or know of a source where it has been published. In addition, spiritualism seems to have been a very large part of Isabella’s life, but the secondary sources do not agree on the extant to which it affected her.Pvjoanis (talk) 12:37, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
