About Lucy Stone (1818–1893): Born in West Brookfield, Lucy Stone was the first woman from Massachusetts to receive a college degree. She went on to a long career as an abolitionist and advocate for women’s rights. She organized the first national women’s convention in Worcester (1850) and founded and promoted the Woman’s Journal(1870–1931), which played a significant role in driving the conversation about woman’s suffrage.
