Eleanor Ames (1831—1908) was a suffragist who was the victim of an abusive first marriage. When her second husband died, leaving her with five children to support, she adopted the pen name Eleanor Kirk and reinvented herself as a reporter for The New York Standard. She also wrote essays for publications such as The Revolution, a weekly feminist newspaper established by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. By the 1880s, Kirk’s columns on women’s rights and parenting advice were being syndicated across 150 newspapers in the United States and read by millions.
