British women and children came to its rescue. They launched
a boycott, refusing to buy or consume sugar.
This section sketches the hopes, tragedies, and achievements of the fellowship in the 1790s, and examines some of their powerful and interesting methods. We think you may be struck by how they differed from the public and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working today.
