Lucretia Mott

Biography

Lucretia Mott is a famous American reformer born in 1793. Being a quaker, she had already been against racial discrimination and segregation in churches. She was a mother with four children when she went to an anti-slavery convention in London. There, the women weren't allowed to speak at the covention and had to sit together, away from the men. These action brought Lucretia Mott, 47 years old at the time, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a 25 year old, together. They made arrangements for a meeting to take place about women's rights. This was the start of trying to get equal rights for women. Lucretia Mott died in 1880.
