Standing up for her rights!
Sojourner Truth One of the most well-known advocates for women’s rights is Sojourner Truth. Born in 1797, Sojourner lived 28 years as a slave. As an abolitionist, she traveled across the early nation to speak out against both slavery and women’s rights, soon becoming a voice to be heard during the suffrage movement. Her iconic speech in 1851 “Ain’t I a Woman”, at the Women’s Rights Convention testifies Truth’s unwavering belief and dedication to the equal rights of women, blacks, and most importantly, black women.
