to women s rights By contributing to the World AntiSlavery Convention and the Seneca Falls Convention she made history as a feminist and an abolitionist crusader 3 Mott achieved moderate success as a reformer Most of it coming from writing in books like Discourse on Woman which gained lot publicity This was helpful in spreading the issues of suffrage But the most important success was her in uence on other Women39s Rights activists 4 Mott became a historical figure when she rose to importance among feminists and abolitionists in the 1840s speaking at important events like the World AntiSlavery Convention and the Seneca Falls Convention She was a historical figure being distinct from the other social reformers She also achieved fame and popularity when she meets President John Tyler Her most valuable trait was her fiery idealism 5 The structure she created through organizations like the American Equal Rights Association and the Universal Peace Union in uenced elections and furthered the goals of suffrage and emancipation She is credited with beginning the movement that eventually led to suffrage for black men in 1865 and women in 1920 Mott also in uenced civil rights reformers like Martin Luther King Jr She has a sculpture at the United States Capitol in and is in the US National Women39s Hall of Fame 6 Lucretia Mott was not aradical feminist She represented an average practical
