Quaker Trivia

Four of the five women who convened the 1848 convention on women’s rights at Seneca Falls were Quakers.  It is presumed that the reason Quaker women played a large part in the struggle for women’s suffrage was due to the leadership skills acquired throughout two centuries of women’s experience speaking publicly and adopting administrative leadership roles within the Quaker community—opportunities unmatched for women in any other western religion at that time.
