LIFESTYLE History

Whether you're aware of the fact or not, women always played a significant role in the struggle against slavery and discrimination. Many women took a strong moral stand against slavery, circulating petitions, writing letters and poems, and publishing articles in leading anti-slavery periodicals. Some of these women educated Black people, both free and enslaved, and some of them joined the American Anti-Slavery Society.

The names that often come to mind include Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Sarah Moore Grimké, and Angelina Grimké Weld. However, there were several lesser-known female abolitionists who helped the movement as well, and their impact shouldn't be forgotten.
