CELEBRITY Religion

The Religious Society of Friends, also known as the Quaker Movement, was founded in England in the 17th century. Quakers (or "Friends," as Quakers call themselves) believe humans can experience God through one's "inner light" without the need for religious ceremonies and clergy. Quakers also believe in equal rights for both men and women in religion, and advocate for peace. Quakers then moved to America, where the movement grew. Many of these men and women became influential abolitionists who played key roles in the anti-slavery movement, women’s suffrage, and civil rights.
