Abolition’s Foot Soldiers

Join us to learn about Women’s Anti-Slavery Societies in Massachusetts.

From 1830-1865, an interracial group of women insisted that the struggles for women’s liberation and abolition were linked. They rooted their activism in their shared passion for religion, writing, reading, and teaching. They defended their activism from those who called their actions unbecoming for women by saying that their efforts were part of their duty as women and mothers.
