Lucy Stone (1818-1893)

Lucy Stone was an abolitionist and woman's rights activist. An extremely popular lecturer, she spoke across the country. When Stone married Henry Blackwell in 1855 she did not take his name, which was a highly controversial step. Unlike Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, 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 sex. The activist was one of the writers, editors, and publishers of the "Woman's Journal."
