- Rebecca Perot and Minister Rebecca Cox Jackson, African American leaders in the Shaker movement.
- Ellen Gates Starr and Jane Addams, who met in seminary and went on to be instrumental in the founding of the Hull House Project in Chicago.
- Frances Witherspoon and Tracy D. Mygatt, founders of the Bureau of Legal Advice, and organization “considered [to be] the forerunner of the American Civil Liberties Union.”
- Many more!
