Lucretia Mott

Lucretia Mott (1793-1880) was a women’s rights activist, abolitionist, and reformer. As a powerful orator, she dedicated her life to achieving equality for all of America’s disadvantaged and disenfranchised, including Indians, women, slaves, and free blacks. During an era where women were to be seen and never heard, Mott’s public speaking certainly defied that. And while we now have the luxury to admire that, her behavior was often denounced as controversial and inappropriate. Nevertheless, she persisted.

To pinpoint Mott’s accomplishments into a single entity is almost impossible as her influence expanded to so many areas: speaking for women’s rights at the Seneca Falls Convention, authoring Discourse on Woman, co-founding the Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society.

Originally born in Nantucket, Massachusetts, she was raised as a Quaker. And although her impact on the feminist discourse and abolitionist movement spread throughout America and American history, her legacy is rooted in Philadelphia. Having moved to Philadelphia at 16, she certainly built her roots here. She married James Mott, also an abolitionist and social reformer, at Front and 2nd in Old City. Together, they fought for the same causes, housed several runaway slaves, and raised 5 children who all became active in the anti-slavery movement. In 1869 Mott and her husband were active in the plans for the opening of Swarthmore College, a Quaker institute for higher learning. When the college had been chartered in 1864, she and James had insisted it be coeducational.

Because she had a strong presence as a fighter against gender and racial injustices, mobs would often target her home in Philadelphia. Mott was often seen waiting in her parlor, willing to face her violent opponents. And although she didn’t live to see the day women won the right to vote, Mott is credited with igniting the women’s rights movement and serving as mentor to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who continued Mott’s work after she died.
