I need information to understand the influence of Olympia Brown on American women clergy.

I recommend starting with a reference article on Olympia Brown --

Kujawa, Sheryl A. 2000 "Brown, Olympia (1835-1926), Universalist minister and suffragist." American National Biography. (Harvard Login)

For information about the history of women at HDS, see Ann Braude's 2005-06 Convocation Address "A short half-century: fifty years of women at Harvard Divinity School."
