Lucy Stone was a leading anti-slavery campaigner and a tireless promoter of women's rights. After she married Henry Blackwell in 1855, she kept her birth name and was the first recorded American woman to do so. Other women who kept their maiden names after marriage became known as "Lucy Stoners." In 1869, with Julia Ward Howe, Josephine Ruffin, and Mary Livermore, she founded the American Woman Suffrage Association. Over the next 20 years, she edited and published "The Women's Journal," its weekly magazine promoting equal rights for women. Her daughter Alice Stone Blackwell continued her mother's work and edited the magazine for an additional 35 years.
