Transcript HISTORY LUCY STONE 1818-1893 by Jo Nelson When Lucy Stone was born, her mother lamented, "I am sorry it is a girl. A woman's life is so hard." She spoke from her experience as a farmer's wife who had to carry a heavy load of the farm work in addition to household tasks. Lucy- endured the same hardships growing up but was fortunate enough to go to school. She was determined to further her education, but money was scarce. At 16 she taught school, saved her money, and kept up her own studies. She was one of the first females to graduate from Oberlln College in 1847. Even though encountering prejudice while getting her education, she helped male students until she realized the absurdity of her position. Once at a sewing circle where she was helping to make a shirt for a theological student she said, "How absurd it is for me to work to help educate a student who can earn more money in one week teaching,than I can in one month." She left the shirt unfinished hoping that no one would e- ver complete it. Having deliberately prepared for a career as a public speaker, she became an agent for the anti- slavery society. She lectured on abolition on Saturdays and Sundays and for women's rights the rest of the week. Many were irritated by this precocious woman and longed to quiet her. They hoped that when she married Henry Blackwell in 1855 It would put an end to her career. The Boston Post published a poem with the last stanza: "A name like Curtius shall be his,/On fame's loud trumpet blown/Who with a wedding kiss shuts up/The mouth of Lucy Stone." LUCY STOKE - 1855 in education,in marriage, in everything ,disappointment is the lot of women. It shall be the business of my life to deepen this disappointment in every roman's heart until she bows down to it no longer. To everyone's dismay, Lucy kept her own last name, and at the wedding read aloud a statement to the effect that Henry renounced any immoral rights to her custody, control, ownership of her property, or priority in guardianship of offspring. To add insult to injury, not only were Lucy and her husband women's rights advocates, but Henry's sister was to become the famous Doctor Elizabeth Blackwell. Lucy had the title of "Morning Star of the Women's Rights Movement" because of her work for the movement. She toiled along with such greats as Elizabeth C. Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, The Grimke sisters, Lucretia Mott, and others for the passage of the 13th amendment. She and her husband also travelled over the country In an attempt to halt the passage of the l4th amendment because It protected the franchise for males only. She and Henry helped to edit the suffragist newspaper, The Revolution. In 187O she founded The Woman's Journal, which for over 50 years was the official organ of The National American Woman Suffrage Association. Lucy died In 1893, 27 years before the basic right to vote was granted to women.
