Lucy Stone: An Unapologetic Life

This book is about Lucy Stone
"Lucy Stone: An Unapologetic Life" by Sally McMillen rescues a crucial figure from the shadows of history to spotlight her indelible impact on gender equality, racial justice, and voting rights. Published on January 29, 2015, this biography unfolds the life of Lucy Stone, a woman whose voice and actions were pivotal in the nineteenth-century women's rights movement but whose legacy is often overlooked next to her contemporaries. Raised on a Massachusetts farm, Stone's journey from one of the first women in the U.S. to earn a college degree to a leading orator and activist is a testament to her unyielding dedication to social justice. Through her roles in founding the American Woman Suffrage Association and her relationships with notable figures like Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony, Stone's life is portrayed as both inspirational and revolutionary. Ideal for college students exploring social justice domains, McMillen’s narrative reclaims Stone’s significant contributions to a more equitable society, challenging readers to reflect on the unsung heroes of social movements.
