“I have been derisively called a ‘Woman Rights Man.’ I know no such distinction. I claim to be a Human Rights Man; and wherever there is a human being, I see God-given rights inherent in that being, whatever may be the sex or complexion.” –William Lloyd Garrison, 1853
There is a common thread running through the stories of early women’s rights activists like Maria W. Stewart, Sarah and Angelina Grimké, Lucy Stone and Sojourner Truth; their rise to fame was aided by the support of William Lloyd Garrison. Happy birthday to William Lloyd Garrison, born on December 10, 1805.
