Lucy Stone speaking on “Woman’s Rights”

“Miss Lucy Stone gave a very interesting address to a large and attentive audience at Temperance Hall, in this village, on Wednesday evening. The subject was ‘Woman’s Rights’, or the sphere and influence of Women, considered in various aspects.   She endeavored to show that the women of America have much less influence than they ought to have in almost every department of life. …. She aimed some well-directed shots at many of the frivolities of the age, and both male and female came in for a share of her sarcasm. …..Miss Stone is a very agreeable speaker, and a lady of of great intelligence, and no one can hear her without acquiring some information. — Dedham Dem.      (Liberator, November 28, 1851, pg 4)
