On May 15, 1838 Lucretia assisted the creation of the Anti- Slavery Convention of American Women. She was appointed as a vice
president, and was elected to the business committee. With the belief that women were pure and religious guides, they resolved
that they should not associate with any churches supporting slavery. Two days later the hall was burned down by a mob.
During 1840 Lucretia Mott became a member of the American Anti-Slavery Society, and was elected as society's representatiove
for the World Anti Slavery Convention in London, but yet again she was unable to participate due to her gender. After this
second gender discrimination she vowed to create a women;s rights convention upon returning to the United States.
Seneca Falls occured during July 1848, and spurred on the women's rights movement. The convention demanded that women receive
the rights equal to men guaranteed to the American citizens, and discussed the social, civil and rleigious rights and current
situations women faced.
Lucretia Mott wrote "The Discourse on Woman" in 1850 which traced how the inferiority of women came about in society
by restricted education, limited employment and low wages.
In 1866 a pressing question came about addressing slavery or women's rights more significant. In order to maintain the
partnership of the abolition and feminist movements an American Equal Rights Association was formed. The members of the association
elected Lucretia as president of the club.
On November 11, 1880 Lucretia Mott died in Philadelphia.
