Lucy Stone (1818-1893)

Lucy Stone was an abolitionist and woman's rights activist. She was an extremely popular lecturer and spoke across the country. When she married Henry Blackwell in 1855 she did not take his name, which was a highly controversial step that caused her trouble. Unlike Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and their National Woman Suffrage Association, Stone supported suffrage for African-American men. Stone founded the American Equal Rights Association, a combination of woman's rights and abolition reformers who wanted to extend voting rights regardless of race and gender.
