Women were very involved in anti-slavery societies and all aspects of the movement. Frederick Douglass himself wrote that "when the true history of the anti-slavery cause shall be written, women will occupy a large space in its pages; for the cause of the slave has been peculiarly woman's cause.

Her heart and her conscience have supplied in large degree its motive and mainspring. The 19th century view of women's nature and role in society gave conflicting messages to women who interested themselves in the movement.

Women were said to have more moral and sympathetic impulses, which made them "naturally" inclined to sympathize with the plight of the slave; on the other hand, society saw women's sphere as purely domestic. Taking an interest-or worse, becoming actively involved-in politics and public policy, was considered immodest, unfeminine, and inappropriate. However, many "female societies" in support of the abolitionist cause were formed, a sort of compromise.

Some were more conservative, even more concerned with slavery as a moral stain on whites' consciences than with racial issues; others included women willing to be criticized for making speeches, and who took more radical stands for racial equality, looking beyond emancipation to establishing legal and civil rights for African-Americans. To a large extent, the feminist movement grew out of the anti-slavery societies.

Pondering the lack of rights for slaves led some members to compare the lack of legal rights for women. Other women found themselves thrust into the women's rights movement as a direct result of the discrimination they encountered within abolitionist circles. Sugar Bowl, Cream-colored earthenware with transfer-printed decoration England Friends of the Museum Purchase Anti-slavery societies often held fundraising events such as bazaars, at which items with abolitionist imagery such as the kneeling slave were sold. Serving sugar from a sugar bowl or carrying a purse with such an image, as well as an emotionally affecting poem, was the period equivalent of a T-shirt or bumper sticker announcing one's political beliefs or support of a certain cause today.

Sugar plantations, of course, usually depended on slave labor; many abolitionists made a point of boycotting goods based on slave labor, or found sources for cotton, sugar, and other items that did not rely on slavery. Sarah Grimke, one of the most prominent and radical anti-slavery writers, called these images "powerful auxiliaries in the cause of emancipation, and [we] recommend that these 'pictorial representations' be multiplied…so that the speechless agony of the fettered slave may unceasingly appeal to the heart of the patriotic, the philantropic, and the christian.
