Lucy Stone (1818-1893) was hired by the American Anti-Slavery Society in 1848 to deliver anti-slavery lectures. She was also interested in women's rights, and arrived at an interesting compromise with the Society which did not want the anti-slavery issue to be confused with women's rights. Lucy gave speeches on anti-slavery on the weekends. During the week, she would speak on women's rights and charged admission.
