Dickenson "an American orator and lecturer. An advocate for the abolition of slavery and for women's rights, Dickinson was the first woman to give a political address before the United States Congress. A gifted speaker at a very young age, she aided the Republican Party in the hard-fought 1863 elections and significantly influenced the distribution of political power in the Union just prior to the Civil War. Dickinson was the first white woman on record to summit Colorado's Gray's Peak, Lincoln Peak, and Elbert Peak (on a mule), and she was the second to summit Pike's Peak." However, as her rhetoric became too impassioned, her influence began to wain, especially in 1872, attendant to her campaigning efforts for Horace Greeley.

Nevertheless, her influence in the sphere of advocating women's rights cannot be denied, and she is recognized today for those many contributions.
