Clarina Nichols gave this speech at the Woman's Rights Convention held in Worcester, Massachusetts, on October 15, 1851. Nichols states that the woman's sphere was all of humanity rather than the narrow interpretation of her time. She believed this because the necessities of living often forced women outside of the protection of the "woman's sphere." She believed that education was the most important thing parents could give their daughters; because if they were educated, they could deal with anything. Mrs. Nichols later came to Kansas Territory and was an advocate for women's rights at the Wyandotte Constitutional Convention.
