Abstract Lucretia Mott has long been recognized as the center of Philadelphia's abolitionist and reform community, and thus this collection is crucial for understanding not only her own work but also activism in the region and nation. In particular, her papers document the role of women in the abolitionist movement and the relationship between abolitionism and the 19th-century women's rights movement.
