Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a suffragist, activist and key leader of the women’s rights movement.

Mary Fairfax was born on 28th December 1780, in a Mansion on the Scottish Borders. In a time when women were not considered full citizens- with no right to vote, and a minimal education provided only to the ladies of the elite, Mary Fairfax broke all boundaries to prove to society that gender and brilliance are not mutually excusive. Her story is one of courage and determination. Having read through her biography, I was convinced that she was a fascinating human being. In this essay I will focus on the socio-cultural context of her accomplishments, particularly due to her gender.
In 1634, a woman that would play one of the biggest roles in the development of early America came to Massachusetts from England. Before immigrating to the New World though, Anne Hutchinson lived in London with her husband William Hutchinson. There, a minister, John Cotton, who believed you didn’t need to follow the laws and rules of society to connect with God, resonated greatly with Anne. The idea that religion is based on personal views would be taken with her to the New World, where she would become an icon for conservative Puritanism and steadfast determination.

Mary Eliza Mahoney was born in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts (Logan & Winston, 2007). This is in the time era of slavery, and the time era when blacks had to face discrimination every day of their lives. Gates and Higginbotham (2008) said Mahoney was the oldest, wisest, and most strong- willed of the three children her parents Charles Mahoney and Mary Jane Steward had. There is very little known about Mary Mahoney’s parents, “North Carolina natives and possibly former slaves at the time who migrated North prior to the civil war seeking a less racially discriminatory environment soon after their marriage”.
