Connections and Conversations. Formidable Women: Ida B. Wells-Barnett and Lucy Stone
Formidable Women: Ida B. Wells-Barnett and Lucy Stone. Both Stone and Wells wrote, lectured and agitated their entire life to expand civil rights and access to the vote. They lived their lives by their own terms.
Lucy Stone was one of 19th Century America’s most formidable women. While her society demanded women be domestic and dependent, she graduated from college, became a public lecturer, abolitionist, and suffragist. The New York Times sniffed that society might feel less admiration for women if more of them were like Lucy Stone. Others realized she opened the way for others to carry on the struggle for equality.
