Marriage and disownment Until English law provided that marriages according to Quaker usage were valid only if both parties were Quaker members.
The Marriage Society of Friends Act changed this. Quaker practice was to disown members who married other than by the Quaker method.

John Bright told Yearly Meeting in May "Hundred of our members - aye thousands - have been disowned for acts which no church could rightly disown.

In the mid-nineteenth century, American Quaker women helped generate the Women's Rights Movement when they expected to take part in inter-denominational affairs. Women played an important part from the beginning, and spoke prominently at Quaker meetings.
