Frances Willard was one of the most prominent social reformers in 19th century America. As president of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union from 1879 until 1898, Willard rallied support for temperance as well as many other important reform movements including woman's suffrage, women's economic and religious rights, prison reforms, education reforms and labor reforms. A well-known author and public speaker, Willard captivated the imaginations and mobilized the sentiments of countless women. Under her leadership, the WCTU grew to be one of the largest organizations of women in the 19th century and spread its movement worldwide.
