Lucy Stone: 200 Years of Activism
West Brookfield, Massachusetts is gearing up for Lucy Stone’s 200th birthday celebration. Lucy was an outspoken activist in the 19th century, both a feminist and an abolitionist. Despite making great progress in their feminist endeavors, Stone and her companions were silenced in audiences that included men. However, Lucy Stone was determined to have women’s voices heard across all arenas and shatter the male resistance to feminism.
