Suffragist - Jane Hunt

Suffragist - Jane Hunt Visual Arts American History Civil Rights

Jane Hunt invited Elizabeth Cady Stanton to her home in Waterloo, New York during July of 1848.  On the 13th day of that month, Stanton raised the issue of a Women's Rights Convention.

By the end of that afternoon-tea session, Jane Hunt - a Quaker who was sympathetic to the cause of civil rights - became one of the originators of America's first Women's Rights Convention.

History does not give us many details about Jane Hunt.  This image of her was published in A History of Waterloo, by John Becker.
