"Frances Wright" also widely known as "Fanny Wright", was a Scottish-born lecturer, writer, Freethought/freethinker, feminist, Abolitionism in the United States/abolitionist, and social reformer, who became a United States/U. S. citizen in 1825. That year she founded the Nashoba Commune in Tennessee as a utopian community to prepare slaves for abolitionism in the United States/emancipation, intending to create an egalitarian place, but it lasted only three years. Her Views of Society and Manners in America (1821) brought her the most attention as a critique of the new nation.
