Elizabeth Peabody (1804-1894) was known for starting the first English language kindergarten and was an early advocate for play-based education. What many don’t realize is that she helped stoke the fire of women’s and LGBT rights, simply by opening up her parlor (15 West St, Boston, MA 02111). At a time when people shunned alternative political views, Peabody allowed people who were then social radicals to meet in her home—including Margaret Fuller, author of “Women of the Nineteenth Century,” a book that supported same-sex relationships.
