More Lucy Stone

Title

More Lucy Stone

Description

At Lucy Stone's graduation from Oberlin in 1847, she declined the "honor" of writing the oration for a man to read. Wm Lloyd Garrison met her that day. He was impressed with her intellectualism & willingness to make powerful people uneasy, and hired her to lecture on abolition.

Lucy Stone annoyed the Anti-Slave Society by insisting on discussing women's rights as well as abolition. She's the person who recruited Susan B Anthony to the cause - in Worcester in 1850. Eventually they loathed each other, exacerbating the schism in the movement.

She edited the weekly Woman's Journal, known for both quality journalism & loyalty to the Republican Party. Stone disdained the self-mythologizing of Stanton & Anthony, and as a result she's far less famous. I like knowing she was a Leo, and suffered from migraines all her life.
