Amelia Jenks Bloomer was born in Homer, New York, in 1818. Though only formally educated for two years, she taught school and embarked on quite a career in the women's rights movement. At age twenty-two, in 1840, she married lawyer Dexter Bloomer. By his encouragement, Amelia began writing articles in support of prohibition and women’s rights for his paper, The Seneca Falls Courier. Amelia Bloomer published the first edition of her own newspaper, The Lily, devoted entirely to women’s issues, including suffrage, temperance, education, and fashion. Though  not the first to wear them, her insistance on full-length pants and her avid endorsement of them linked her name to the garb forever, resulting in "bloomers."  She and her husband later moved to Iowa.
