How Did Lucretia Mott Combine Her Commitments to
Antislavery and Women's Rights, 1840-1860?

Abstract

       Lucretia Mott attended the 1840 London World Anti-Slavery Convention where she was denied participation because of her gender. In the succeeding two decades Mott remained a leading figure in Quaker abolitionist and women's rights activities. Her correspondence offers a window on these interrelated reform activities in the antebellum decades and reveals the interconnections between Quaker reformers in Great Britain and the United States.
