    Like Mothers of Feminism, this book gave me some good perspective on the Society of Friends in terms of both past and present I m amazed both by how much we ve changed over the years, and by how little we ve changed over the years

    The life of Lucretia Mott, one of the Quaker leaders who fought against slavery and for women s rights It a great joy to find out that my ancestor, Lucretia Mott was great friend with Susan B Anthony Before I found this out, I had already had a friend who was descended from Susan B Anthony Other than the great surprise, this is a wonderful book of a courgeous and daring woman who along with others at Seneca Falls changed history.

    Lucrecia Mott was a fascinating lady, little remembered by history and overshadowed by E Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony in the suffrage movement But without Mott to guide and support Stanton in the early years, I say Seneca Falls 1848 doesn t happen A readable biography, not as good as Griffith s on Cady Stanton.

    Possibly of interest as a memoir for her descendants or those of strong feminist views Reads like a dull diary of endless meetings and establishments of societies with which one has no connection An assigned read I would never have chosen nor would recommend.

    A beautiful and fascinating read about a beautiful and fascinating personality I am glad that I have Margaret Hope Bacon s book on the history of Quakers in America to continue my reading I hope to continue to be inspired by the writer s other works as I was by this.

    This was a great biography about the Nantucket woman who figured prominently in the women s suffrage movement though she is rarely remembered with her famous peers.
