Summary
The daughter of a Nantucket sea captain, Lucretia Mott exhibited, from her earliest years, an extraordinary confidence and eloquence. As an adult, she dared to speak out to all-male audiences and refused to be silenced when she was attacked by protestors or when meeting halls where her organizations were to gather were burned down. In her later years, Mott became an advisor to presidents and a colleague to such activists as Frederick Douglas, Susan B. Anthony, and Sojourner Truth.
