Lucretia Mott

By Sharon Fabian
1     In the late 1800s, there were a few people in America who began to notice some problems in our society. They noticed that the freedom Americans loved so much was not enjoyed by all Americans. They noticed that there were many groups of people, including African Americans and women, who had very few rights. They worked to make people aware of the problems and tried to correct them.
 
2     One of these people was Lucretia Mott. She was especially active in the anti-slavery movement and the women's rights movement.
 
3     Lucretia Mott grew up in a fishing village in Massachusetts. There, the men were often out at sea, and the women were used to being independent and taking care of things themselves. Lucretia's Quaker religion taught that women should have equal rights, and it encouraged women to speak out for what they believed in, too. So Lucretia grew up with more experience of equality for women than most Americans of that time.
 
4     Soon, Lucretia moved to Boston to attend school. She eventually became a teacher at the school and met her future husband, James Mott, who was also a teacher there.
