WAY BACK WHEN IN WAYNE COUNTY: Women's rights advocate welcomed in S. Butler - Finger Lakes Times

Monday, July 04, 2016

This was unheard of for a woman in those times. She enrolled in the subscribed course for women students at the time, the Ladies Literary Course at Oberlin College (the first college to admit women and blacks). After graduating with her bachelor’s degree, she lobbied the college for admission to the college’s theological course. The administration was opposed to the idea of a woman taking any kind of formal theological training. In 1847, they eventually let her enroll in the courses, but she was not to receive formal recognition.As a woman, Brown encountered many difficulties. Although she was allowed to attend the Theological College, she was not really allowed to participate or speak publicly. She worked, saved and studied until she graduated in 1850 after three years of poverty, ridicule and discrimination. She was not allowed to take part in the commencement exercises and her name did not appear in the official listing of that year’s class. She was also denied a teaching certificate and of course she was refused a license to preach. So, she turned to social reform and speaking tours for the cause of women’s rights.As she traveled she met many of the leading thinkers and reformers of that age — Susan B. Anthony, Amelia Bloomer, William Lloyd Garrison, Henry Ward Beecher, Thoreau and many others.Brown’s first venture into public life was her attendance at an anti-slavery convention in Oswego. After a convention in Massachusetts (which earned her a reputation as a fine speaker) she began to tour, speaking on abolitionism and women’s rights. At that time she also began serving as guest minister in the more progressive churches along her route.It was on one of these speaking tours that she arrived in South Butler, where she was invited to speak at ...
