Social reform by quaker women: A case study of Lucretia Mott

Document Type



This article focuses on Lucretia Mott, a prominent minister, abolitionist, pacifist, religionist, fighter for women's rights, and social reformer. Times, conditions, and circumstances have changed, but personal, social, and societal struggles have not and there is as much need for social reform today as during Lucretia's times. How to discern, handle, and deal with modern-day problems and issues, Lucretia's endeavours shed light on that and social reformers of the present times can learn much from her example and experiences. Students and scholars in sociology, women's studies, religious studies, historical accounts, social change, and social welfare will find the contents of this article quite useful.
