Published by Prologue Magazine
Moses Harmon’s life was complicated by one problem. He was born in the wrong century. Being an advocate of women’s rights in the late 19th century wasn’t just unpopular; it could threaten your liberty. Harmon was the publisher of a newspaper called “Lucifer the Light Bearer” Within the pages of his paper he attacked the state of marriage. Without equal rights for women he argued, it was nothing less than sexual slavery for women. One issue published a letter that described a rape within marriage. Harmon was charged with mailing obscene material under the Comstock Act and became the twenty-second inmate to serve a sentence at Leavenworth.
