I Now Pronounce You Lucy Stone™

          Challenging discrimination is not easy, but Lucy Stone is never one to take the easy road. The first woman from Massachusetts to earn a college degree, Lucy defies every obstacle and is an ardent supporter of human rights. Always fierce, her belief that women and men be equal is evident in both her political and personal endeavors. Her message inspired thousands of women to join the suffrage movement; Susan B. Anthony credits Lucy's impassioned speeches for her involvement.
          As a scholar, Lucy intensely studied Greek, Latin, and Hebrew and vehemently insists the Holy Bible was mistranslated to oppress women. There is no way Lucy settles for second best, not even in her marriage! She and her husband Henry Browne Blackwell created The Marriage Protest to be read in place of traditional wedding vows and refused to take her husband's surname, leading to the moniker of "Lucy Stoner" to describe a woman who does just that!

          In this fiery presentation, Lucy describes the tension of Antebellum Boston.  Women were evolving from successful abolitionists to struggling suffragists and their fight would forever alter a woman's place in history. Suitable for all ages.
