ACTIVITY SHEET
What Have Women to Do with Slavery?
A Dialogue

AN ARTICLE FROM THE LIBERATOR, NOVEMBER 1, 1839

Mrs. A. Is it possible, my dear Harriet, that what I have heard is true, and that
you have actually joined the Anti-Slavery Society?

Harriet. It is so, aunt; I became satisfied that it was my duty.

Mrs. A. I thought your mother did not approve of your engaging in this matter.

Harriet. She did not, but then she wished me to act according to my own
sense of right; she says I am of an age to decide for myself upon questions of
right and wrong.

Mrs. A. I am sorry that my sister has been so weakly indulgent to you; I doubt
not that in a short time I shall hear that she also has turned abolitionist, and if
your uncle does not prevent his name from being so disgraced, she will sign
the petitions of Congress
with other misguided women.

Harriet. Excuse me, dear aunt, but I cannot help hoping that your fears may be
realized. But why is it that you are displeased with what I have done? I thought
you told me that you were convinced that slavery is sinful; and you have often
said that you felt as much for the poor slaves as I do.

Mrs. A. And I dare say I do; but I do not approve of the doings of the abolition-
ists
in the first place; and most of all do I disapprove of women’s meddling
with such things.
