I have been a part of many. When I was a teacher, I joined the labor union to fight for the rights of teachers, their low wages, and working conditions. In 1852, I attended the Syracuse convention and I heard Lucy Stone, another important advocate of women 's rights, and hearing her speak was actually what motivated me to start fighting for the rights of my gender. I also attended the National Women 's rights campaign in 1854. Not only do I believe that gender inequality is a global issue, but slavery is a major one as well.

The purpose of this argument was to convince the government to enforce laws that restrict child labor and benefit woman in an increase to improve working conditions. Florence Kelley was hoping to achieve respect and loyalty to the people she led.
He saw she was afraid so Mark was the person who was able to gain her confidence and trust. With all this evidence she showed a positive side of the story because she trusted Mark when she was afraid and know he will protect her. The best thing about Shyima is how brave she was to try to find the perfect family and learn to speak English at the same time for her to attend school. In the book Hidden Girl it says “ I was looking forward to making friends and learning as much as possible so I could eventually make my way in my new country.” Shyima continue to show her positive side and not having any doubts coming her way as in her new
Until the Civil war, she never stopped working for the American Anti-Slavery Society. But then she was more focused on pursuing women's rights. She started claiming the rights of both sexes and she established with her friend Stanton the American Equal Rights Association. In 1863 both Susan Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton established the Women's Loyal National League to demand some constitution amendments in the United States. It was the first American Women’s organization for anti-slavery movement as it was the only political tool for women at that time.
She started out as a slave and escaped and once she became free she too thought that everyone should know what it is like to be truly free she lead many friends and families and those family’s friends to freedom.

From colonial times and a tad after the civil war slavery was known in the United States.

In addition to sacrificing her virtue for her children, Harriet spent seven years living in her grandmother 's attic to ensure the freedom of her and her children. She underwent extreme physical conditions to make sure that her children would be free. Harriet watched her children grow up a few feet away from her yet she had to sacrifice precious time with her children in order to guarantee their freedom, showing yet another sacrifice that Harriet had to make as the mother of a slave. Harriet also arranged to have her daughter Ellen sent to New York so she would be able to receive an education (123). Once she joined her daughter in New York, she spent most of the money that she earned from working for Mrs. Bruce on Ellen to make sure that she was taken care of properly (139), much like her own grandmother did for her at the beginning of the book, and I thought the fact that this came full-circle was very fascinating.

At one point in her life, she was sold to a mistress to become inside help instead of helping out in the fields like the rest of her family. Rit, her mother, was ecstatic that she was being chosen to go inside. That meant that she might not have to work outside ever again and would not receive such abusive beatings all the time (12). Slaves working inside were not treated as poorly as those outside. Courageously, Tubman started a new adventure in her life without the comfort of her
