Provocative Mothers and Their Precocious Daughters: 19th Century Women's Rights
Mothers and daughters share a special bond that ebbs and flows throughout their lives. It may not always be solid, but no matter what difficulties they face, their relationships are usually unbreakable.
Take a step back in time to uncover the engaging lives of four mothers and daughters. As pioneer women s rights leaders, Martha Wright, Abby Kelley Foster, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucy Stone worked diligently for what they believed women deserved. Letters, diary entries, and journals reveal the strong mother-daughter relationships that not only enriched their personal lives, but the woman suffrage movement as a whole.
From the mid-1800s to the early 1900s, these women struggled to make the world a better place. Through their actions and beliefs, they forged a path for future generations and raised daughters to be determined young women who merit our attention today.
