Lucy Stone (2).jpg

Dublin Core


Reformer Lucy Stone was born near West Brookfield, Massachusetts on August 13, 1818.  She graduated from Oberlin College in 1847, with honors.  

Early in her career, she was an Antislavery lecturer, but Lucy's lifelong passion was advocating for women's suffrage.  Lucy gave her first women’s rights lecture in Gardner in 1847.  Very active in the cause, she founded the American Woman's Suffrage Association in 1869 with Mary Livermore, Julia Ward Howe, William Lloyd Garrison,  George William Curtis, and other reformers.  Lucy founded  Woman’s Journal and edited it for many years.

Stone was married to Henry B. Blackwell, although she kept her own name, and was the mother of Alice Stone Blackwell.

Lucy passed away on October 18, 1893.
