Northside speaks out

The Antislavery Society gave a solid voice to the Abolitionist Movement. As the leading organization behind abolition, it gave the North a potent opposition to the pro-slavery South. It was the most powerful abolitionist force of the 1830s, overshadowing the American Colonization Society's wish to send enslaved people to Liberia.

Additionally, the AASS allowed women to join in the movement. This essentially gave the North an edge because the South did not give women ownership of slaves, and hence had no voice in the fight.

It formalized the argument of slavery, and added to the growing tensions and political divide of the country.
