Meet Lucretia Coffin Mott Quaker Minister, Abolitionist, and Suffragist

March 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
NJ United States + Google Map

SCLSNJ's Manville Library branch In an age when women were not expected to think about issues of the day, Lucretia contemplated them, and spoke out about them. This program is funded by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities. 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in America. A follower of Elias Hicks, Lucretia served as a Public Friend who emphasized the divinity within every individual. Mott supported the Anti-Slavery movement and advocated the use of Free Produce. She was elected as an American Representative to the 1840 General (or World’s) Anti-Slavery Convention. When women were excluded from participating, and were required to sit in a segregated area, Mott began to realize that she must also muster her efforts towards women’s equality.
