About Susan B Anthony

Have her deliver speeches and bring her with you to the voting booth. She'll appreciate it if you let her pull the lever. On your finger, she's a puppet; on your fridge, she's a magnet! After teaching for fifteen years, she became active in temperance. Because she was a woman, she was not allowed to speak at temperance rallies. This experience, and her acquaintance with Elizabeth Cady Stanton, led her to join the women's rights movement in 1852. Soon after, she dedicated her life to woman suffrage. Ignoring opposition and abuse, Anthony traveled, lectured, and canvassed across the nation for the vote. She also campaigned for the abolition of slavery, the right for women to own their own property and retain their earnings, and she advocated for women's labor organizations. In 1900, Anthony persuaded the University of Rochester to admit women. 

About Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman was the most famous "conductor" on the Underground Rail Road. Tubman escaped from bondage in 1849 and went on to help hundreds make their way to free states int he north, earning the nickname "Moses of her people." She worked side-by-side with the most notasble abolitionists of her day. During the Civil War, she served the Union Army as a nurse, scout and spy.

Her most famous quotes are, "I could have saved at least a thousand more, if I could have convinced them that they were slaves." and "Never wound a snake, kill it." 

About Sojourner Truth

Born a slave in New York State, Isabella Baumfree escaped with her young daughter, retreived her son from slavery in Alabama, experienced a religious conversion and changed her name to Sojourner Truth. An imposing figure and dazzling speaker, Truth traveled the country for 40 years as a preacher, abolitionist and women's rights activist.

One of her most famous quotes is, "That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain't I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man - when I could get it - and bear the lash as well! And ain't I a woman? I have borne five children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman?” 

About Frida Kahlo

Mexican artist Frido Kahlo's surealist work (consisting mostly of exaggerated self-portraits) was closely informed by indigenous Mexican culture. Other prevalent themes reflected her own history: a serious tramatic injuries as a youth, her tempestuous marriage and various love affairs, and her radical political views. Known as a political, artistic, and sexualy revolutionary, Kahlo remains a feminist icon whose unique style still provakes and inspires.

One of her most famous quotes is, "I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best."
