The Role of Quaker Women in Colonial America

From the beginning the Quakers treated women more equally and gave them more power and the ability to hold leadership positions within their faith than any of the other early Christian religions. They were allowed to speak in meeting, publish, and encouraged to get an education. While Quaker women enjoyed greater equality within the church and community, their influence did not extend to financial matters, and men kept the upper hand by taking care of property, finances, and business.

Learn more about the role of early Quaker women from speaker Sarah DiSantis, director of the Morgan Log House, at our spring Lunch & Learn Lecture at Graeme park.
