How did Harriet Beecher Stowe impact the world in three ways?
After a little research, I see six aspects. Through her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin and other abolitionist works, Stowe brought to public attention the following issues:
- the rampart abuse and corruption in the African slave trade, still in vigour at the time.
- the mistreatment of slaves in the Southern states and the denigration of their dignity and basic human rights.
- the disparity between Christian ethics "preached" and what was actually practised.
- the dilemma of conflict of loyalties the abolitionist position evoked to otherwise law-abiding white citizens.
- the injustice of the Fugitive Slave Law, in which an escaped slave in a free state could be captured and returned to his/her owner.
- the dubious future awaiting slaves once their freedom would be assured.
Apart from the three references listed below, see also the following concerning Stowe's personal life:
