The Woman They Could Not Silence

One Woman, Her Incredible Fight for Freedom, and the Men Who Tried to Make Her Disappear

1860: As the clash between the states rolls slowly to a boil, Elizabeth Packard is facing her own battle. Her husband of twenty-one years feels increasingly threatened by Elizabeth's intellect, independence, and unwillingness to stifle her own thoughts. So one summer morning, he has her committed to an insane asylum. But Elizabeth is not the only sane woman confined to the institution. Many women on her ward who tell the same story: they've been committed to keep them in line ― conveniently labeled "crazy" so their voices are ignored.

Kate Moore, bestselling author of The Radium Girls, brings her sparkling narrative voice this unputdownable story of the forgotten woman who courageously fought for her own freedom ― and in so doing freed millions more. Elizabeth's refusal to be silenced not only led to a giant leap forward in human rights, it also showcased the most salutary lesson: sometimes, the greatest heroes we have are those inside ourselves.
