Susan Jacoby writes, “When Mott died in 1880, she was widely judged by her contemporaries… as the greatest American woman of the nineteenth century.” She was a mentor to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who continued her work. A stamp was issued in 1948 in remembrance of the Seneca Falls Convention, featuring Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Carrie Chapman Catt, and Lucretia Mott. Mott is commemorated in a sculpture by Pablo Picasso at the Carrier Dome, Syracuse, unveiled in 1997. Florencia finds Lucy on the left side of her painting contemplating the inner struggles to fight for woman’s rights.
