4793 Slessor (provisional designation : 1988 RR4) is a main-belt minor planet. It was discovered by Henri Debehogne at La Silla Observatory in Chile on September 1, 1988. Mary Slessor (1848 - 1915)was a Scottish missionary to Nigeria. Her work and strong personality allowed her to be accepted by the locals. She campaigned against injustices against women and sought to raise their status. She also took in outcasts and worked tirelessly to protect children, particularly unwanted twins. The name was suggested through an initiative of the Belgian based NGO Ette Ibibio in preparation for the 2015 centenary celebrations and published in the Sep-9-2014 edition of the Minor Planet Circulars.
