  • 100% Completed
In 1890, second-generation suffragist Alice Stone Blackwell helped to broker a merger of the two major national women’s suffrage organizations, one of which was founded by her parents, Lucy Stone and Henry Browne Blackwell. The two organizations put aside their differences to become the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA). Alice took up the family business of suffrage becoming the recording secretary for NAWSA and eventually the editor of NAWSA’s weekly newspaper, the Woman’s Journal, which her parents began in 1870.
