Hide Profile

Margaret Askew Fell Fox was an early Quaker, and infused the movement with her feminist ideals. She had joined the Quakers in 1652, and later, a widowed mother of nine, married Quaker founder George Fox. Her belief that men and women were equal in the eyes of God became a key tenet in Quakerism, where women were accepted as equals in church preaching and ministry. She is thus a keystone in both the Quaker movement and early feminism.
