Great post on the women that advocated for women and slaves rights. As stated in your post two important black women in history were Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman. Formal slaves, both women joined with the whites who believed that slavery was wrong. Also two more important women in history were Harriet Beecher Stowe and Susan Anthony. Harriet Beecher Stowe, an abolitionist who had come to know a number of escaped slaves while she was living in Cincinnati and she also authored the novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin (History Net, 2016).
Elizabeth Cady Stanton was an equal rights activist and suffragist. Before her work as a feminist, Elizabeth was an active abolitionist with with her husband and cousin. Unlike a lot of of women’s rights activists, she focuses on much more than suffrage and voting rights. She fought many battles still fought today. Elizabeth gave a speech titled “The Destructive Male” at a women’s rights convention in Washington D.C. in 1868.
Right after a hurricane warning was issued at the Glades, all the townsfolk gather at Tea Cake’s house and prepare for a feast. Janie cooks the meal, just like she did in Eatonville, but in this case, Tea Cake stays with her and encourages her by praising her young looks. Though Janie cooks and stays in the house, she is not rangebound like she is in Eatonville. Home cooked fresh beans along with other drinks and nibbles are served and everyone has a ebullient and mirthful evening. This meal is truly exemplary of communion because everyone, including Janie takes part in the evening, is comfortable with each other, and has a good time together.
The Second Great Awakening happened seventy years after the first great awakening and urged people to reach a personal and emotional understanding with God. Women like Angelina Grinkè, urged other women to use their domestic influence to push social reform for women’s suffrage, in Grinkè’s case, it was about abolition(Doc. F). The purpose of this document is that Grinkè encourages activism by Christian women against slavery. Harriet Beecher Stowe was perhaps one of the most important abolitionist in American History.
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.
Her contributions include but are not limited to the right to vote, equal education opportunities, and women’s salary equality. Without her contributions, women would not have the equal rights or opportunities we have today. The women’s suffrage movement started in 1848 to gain equal rights for women in several areas including voting, education, and pay. Anthony got involved in 1852 after meeting Elizabeth Cady Stanton and became dedicated to the cause. The first national convention for women’s right was on July 19, 1848.

Who were the founders and what methods did they use? What were their successes and/or failures? Women’s Suffrage Movement gave women the right to vote in elections during the late 19th century. Women organizations nationally and even globally formed efforts to gain voting and equal civil rights for women. Women's Suffrage Movement has taught many students about the importance of gender equality and how women deserve the same rights and benefits that a man is given.
The women’s suffrage movement paved the way for equal voting rights for all women throughout the twentieth century. Many strong and inspiring women fought for the rights that we now have today. One of them, including Alice Paul. Paul played a major role in pressuring Congress to pass the 19th amendment. Instead of sitting quietly in peaceful protests and campaigns, she refused to be a small voice in a sea of power-hungry men and oppressed women and made herself and women’s struggles known to America.
Sarah and Angelina Grimke were one of the first women in the 1830s who would rally against mixed crowds; practicing their first amendment of freedom of assembly. As well as promoting female equality the Grimke sisters testified to the state legislature for African Americans. The issue that remained was that white abolitionist still could not accept blacks as their equals. It wasn 't until Maria Stewart spoke out to the public, that the Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society was established in 1833. The idea of being free and equal was beginning to seem more and more reachable, but the road to women 's equality continued until 1863.
This wasn’t it she also was the first woman to lead an armed army. Her work and dedication has inspired many generations of Americans who struggling for civil rights, with her bold and brave actions. With the land she had purchased, she built a home for sick and elderly blacks. A book was written about her by Sarah H. Bradford named “Scenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman”. When she died in 1913 of pneumonia, there was a monument built in her memory and was buried with military honors.
Sojourner Truth was a prominent abolitionist and women’s rights activist. Born a slave in New York State, she had at least three of her children sold away from her. After escaping slavery, Truth embraced evangelical religion and became involved in moral reform and abolitionist work. She collected supplies for black regiments during the Civil War and immersed herself in advocating for freed people during the Reconstruction period. Isabella escaped slavery in 1827, one year before mandatory emancipation in New York State, by fleeing to a Quaker family, the Van Wageners, whose name she took.
She joined the Northampton Associate of Education and Industry of Northampton in Massachusetts in 1844. She devoted her life to Methodism and the abolition of slavery. In 1851, Truth would deliver a speech at the Ohio Women’s Rights Convention in Akron. The speech would be known as “Ain’t I a Woman?” The first version of the speech was published a month later by Marius Robinson and the famous words would appear in print 12 years later. Truth continued on the tour in Ohio from 1851 to 1853 with Robinson about the antislavery movement in Ohio.
Harriet A. Jacobs was born a slave in North Carolina in 1813 and became a fugitive in the 1830s. She recorded her triumphant struggle for freedom in an autobiography that was published pseudonymously in 1861. As Linda Brent, the book 's heroine and narrator, Jacobs recounts the history of her family: a remarkable grandmother who hid her from her master for seven years: a brother who escaped and spoke out for abolition; her two children, whom she rescued and sent north. She recalls the degradation of slavery and the special sexual oppression she found as a slave woman: the master who was determined to make her his concubine.With Frederick Douglass 's account of his life, it is one of the two archetypes in the genre of the slave
Truth is powerful and it prevails, as did Sojourner Truth. The feminist and abolitionist leader deserves to be commemorated with a monument. The ex-slave and mother of 5 was a traveling preacher and the first female, African-American abolitionist speaker. The prominent activist became famous when she filed a lawsuit fighting for her son who had been illegally sold into slavery, and won, resulting in her becoming the first African-American woman to win a court case against a white man. She was then recruited as a lecturer on the anti-slavery circuit, earning a reputation as a powerful speaker for abolition and women’s rights.
