Alice Stone Blackwell

Biography

American feminist, suffragist, journalist, radical socialist, and human rights advocate.

Her parents, Henry Browne Blackwell and Lucy Stone, were suffrage leaders and helped establish the American Woman Suffrage Association (AWSA).

After graduating from Boston University, Blackwell began working for the Woman's Journal, the paper started by her parents. By 1884, her name was alongside her parents on the paper's masthead. After her mother's death in 1893, she assumed almost sole editing responsibility of the paper.

In 1890, she helped reconcile the American Woman Suffrage Association and National Woman Suffrage Association, two competing organizations in the women's suffrage movement, into the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA).

In later life, Blackwell went blind. She died on 15 March 1950, aged 92.
