Margaret FullerThe Margaret Fuller Bicentennial Project was organized to celebrate Margaret Fuller’s life, work, and legacy during the Bicentennial anniversary of her birth in 2010. Components of the project includes: website, online community, traveling exhibit, publications, tours, and public programs in the Boston area and New York City. This website will be created to be a resource to the interested public, a communication tool for individuals and organizations participating in the Bicentennial project, and a central bulletin board for planning programs and posting event details.

Margaret Fuller (1810-1850) was born into a Boston-area Unitarian family. She was the only woman regularly welcomed on a long-term basis into the inner-circle of ministers and others led by Ralph Waldo Emerson in breaking away from the old forms of Unitarianism and establishing Transcendentalism. Fuller’s book Woman in the Nineteenth Century, one of the first written about women analyzing their role in society from a woman’s perspective, is permeated with the Transcendentalist values of independence, self-reliance, and social reform. What Emerson was doing for men, Fuller was doing for women.

Many scholars view Fuller as the most brilliant woman in America in the early 19th century.
