Her work builds on thirty years of research, teaching, and publication on the religious history of American women including Radical Spirits: Spiritualism and Women's Rights in Nineteenth-Century America (2nd edition, 2001); Transforming the Faiths of Our Fathers: The Women Who Changed American Religion (2004); and Sisters and Saints: Women and American Religion (2nd edition, 2007). It also incorporates her perspectives gained from eighteen years as the director of the women's studies in religion program at Harvard Divinity School, an international postdoctoral research program.
