On this date in 1832, Harriet Law was born in the United Kingdom. She and her husband, Mr. Law, attended lectures at Secular Hall in order to debate the speakers, and wound up being deconverted.

According to freethought historian Joseph McCabe, "she had to endure much insult and even assault." She edited the Secular Chronicle in 1878. D. 1897.
