Lucretia Mott (top center) was seventy-seven when this lithograph of leaders of the American suffrage movement appeared in 1870. Included as “Representive Women” were two other Pennsylvanians. One of the nation’s best known woman writers, Grace Greenwood (on left below Mott)–the pen name of Sara Jane Lippincott–lived in Philadelphia, as did Anna Dickinson (center), a powerful pubic speaker whose intensity, youth, and passion had won her national celebrity during the Civil War.
