Lucretia Mott (1793-1880) was a Quaker abolitionist in Philadelphia. She played a prominent role in the 1837 Anti-Slavery Convention of American Women—an early meeting that, in part, concerned a woman’s right to speak in public. Eleven years later, Mott helped organize the Seneca Falls convention, where she delivered the opening and closing addresses.
