She fought for religious rights, women’s rights, and the rights of the poor. She helped start two towns in Rhode Island, became an early female minister, and remained a loyal friend to all those around her. Find out how this humble but brave Quaker woman inspired kings, governors and everyday people to guarantee religious freedom for everyone.
