In 1851, a former slave became a luminary of the women’s rights movement. Sojourner Truth, born Isabella Baumfree, delivered an impassioned speech later titled “Ain’t I a Woman?” that questioned society’s out-of-kilter view and treatment of women. In her day, there was no Women’s History Month, but instead a tireless, year-round fight against injustice.
As this month draws to an end, please join us in amplifying the bold voices and actions of women past and present. Check out this board for an activity idea and curated resources for your students to recognize and support an historic woman at her time of achievement.
