Protesting exclusion of women from London convention

Writing from London, July 3, Garrison sends a copy of a Protest against the exclusion of women from the London convention.  He indicates that the Protest was read at the end of the Convention by Wendell Phillips, and “produced a strong sensation.  It was treated in the most disrespectful manner”, ……and the request to have it printed in the proceedings of the Convention was denied “in the spirit of cowardice and injustice. Such conduct must inevitably produce a reaction.  …… and the result will, I am sure, be most advantageous to the cause of our common humanity.”
