Abstract What makes these records interesting also makes it challenging to fit the collection under the scope of women's rights. Until 1875, managers and officers were all women, while men sat on the Board of Council. Starting in 1875, men filled the roles previously held by women, who were demoted to the associate board. As a result, their voices disappeared from annual reports, where previously they had expounded on the relationship between women and reform work in some detail. While this lends itself to comparing different reform strategies and philosophies, it also makes it difficult to locate women's agency.
