Una, The

Una, The

▪ American periodical
      American publication, founded by Paulina W. Davis (Davis, Paulina Kellogg Wright) in 1853, that was widely recognized as the first periodical of the women's rights movement. Though several similar journals had appeared the previous year, The Una was the first to be owned, edited, and published by a woman. The inaugural issue was released in February 1853 with a masthead reading “A Paper Devoted to the Elevation of Women.” Elizabeth Cady Stanton (Stanton, Elizabeth Cady) was a contributor to the paper, as were Lucy Stone (Stone, Lucy) and Caroline Dall as correspondents. Chronicling the movement's progress and advancing its principles, the newspaper was published in Providence, Rhode Island, for two years and moved to Boston in 1855. Financial problems, however, plagued the paper, and its last issue appeared on October 15 of that year.
