Amelia pendant

{Amelia pendant - one of my favorites!}

I'll bet you can guess what Amelia Bloomer is famous for… That's right - bloomers are named after her! She had a leading role in promoting dress reform for women in the late 1800s.

She was the first women to start her own newspaper, The Lily. At first, the focus of the paper was temperance, but, with the help of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the focus soon changed to the issue of women's rights. The Lily educated women about the inequities they faced and the possibility of major social reform.
