Happy birthday, Ursula Franklin (Sept. 16, 1921 – July 22, 2016)! #Quaker. #Feminist.#Pacifist. Anti-war activist. Physicist. Longtime professor at the University of Toronto. Regarded the practice of “collective silence” (as in Quaker meetings) to be “one of the most powerful spiritual forces.” Advocate of “citizen politics.” She encouraged people to engage in “scrupling,” a Quaker term which means sitting down together to discuss and clarify common moral and political concerns. Quotable quote: “The struggle for women’s rights and the opposition to militarism in all its forms are two sides of the same coin.” Born in Munich, Germany. Died in Toronto, Canada.
~The Marginal Mennonite Society Heroes Series
