A SENTIMENT

by Elaine Romero

Lucretia Mott arrives home late one night in 1848 to find her husband John waiting by the fire. An astonishingly frank conversation ensues as the 55-year-old wife and mother boldly and lovingly explains her co-creation of the Declaration of Sentiments, and her work to create a new future of possibilities for her daughters, their daughters, and all women.
