  • Today’s History: Lucretia Mott, an early proponent of women’s rights and opponent of slavery, was born on this date in 1793 -- NYT-- Among her many notable remarks:

    If our principles are right, why should we be cowards?

    The world has never yet seen a truly great and virtuous nation, because in the degradation of women, the very fountains of life are poisoned at their source.

    I have no idea of submitting tamely to injustice inflicted either on me or on the slave. I will oppose it with all the moral powers with which I am endowed. I am no advocate of passivity.

    Let her [woman] receive encouragement for the proper cultivation of all her powers, so that she may enter profitably into the active business of life.
