Mary was the youngest of five daughters, followed by one son, born in Oswego NY to Alvah and Vesta Walker. Her father Alvah was a carpenter-farmer and abolitionist who believed in free thinking and many of the reform movements in the mid-1800s – including education and equality for his daughters, as well as dress reform (feeling their movements and abilities were impaired by the tight-fitting women’s clothing of the time). The girls provided farm labor, so their father did not expect them to wear restrictive corsets and such attire while working. He also intended all of his children to be educated and pursue professional careers. Women in History. Mary Edwards Walker. Lakewood Public Library
