A feminist is a person whose beliefs and behavior are based on feminism.One thing that i didn't know about Phillis Wheatley is that she was the first African American, the first slave, and the third woman in the United States to publish a book of poems.Also I didn't know that black women could do well in that time period.

*Sojourner Truth*
The woman who i chose for Women's History Month was Sojourner Truth. I learned that she was one of the activists who campaigned for free land for former slaves. Sojourner worked to help newly freed slaves through the Freedman's Relief Association. Also, she became involved in a religious group called the Progressive Friends (an offshoot of the Quakers). They believed in abolition, women's rights, non-violence, and communicating with spirits.

A feminist is a woman who stands up for all women. I learned that Elizabeth Freedman was the first black women to be freed in Massachusetts and she did it by going to court because she overheard men talking about womens' rights. She was very smart and she must have been able to read.

*Sojourner Truth*

Sojourner Truth was born into slavery and was sold at age 9. She was an abolitionist who expressed detest for the economic stance of blacks and vied for the freedom of slaves as well as for free land. She helped newly freed slaves find land and worked through the Freedman's Relief Association. Sojourner Truth is best known for her famous speech "Aint I a Woman" which she delivered in 1854, in which she argued for the rights of black women to be teated fairly like white women, because as she argued they were all women.

A feminist is a person who believes in gender equality and rights for women in the workplace, as well as the world. Sojourner truth became a women's rights activist during her life, making famous attributes, including her speech, "Ain't I
A Woman?" and the Underground Railroad. The UR helped willing slaves escape to freedom with her help, along with the help of whites who also didn't like slavery. Two things I learned about Ms. Truth was that she changed her name, which was originally Isabella Baumfree, and that she was born in New York but died in Michigan.

A feminist is a person whose beliefs and behavior are based on feminism. Mum Bett, later known as Elizabeth Freeman, (c.1742 - 1829) was the first black woman to be set free in the United States, and great-grandmother to W.E.B. DuBois. Elizabeth Freeman was around 87 years old when she died in 1829.

Mum Bett, later known as Elizabeth Freeman,(c.1742 - 1829) was the first black woman to be set free in the United States. She is the great-grand mother to W.E.B. DuBois,a black American historian and sociologist who conducted the initial research on the black experience in the United States. His work paved the way for the civil rights, Pan-Africans, and Black Power movements in the United States.Elizabeth Freeman was around 87 years old when she died in 1829.

Somethings that I have learned about sojourner truth is her real name is Isabella Baumfree. Ms.Truth birth date was 1797.Ms.truth was born in Ulster County,New York.Isabella also was sold many times the last time she ran off with the infant because her last master promised her freedom and reneged when it came time. i think running off helped her become the women she was.she died November 26 1883 in Battle Creek Michigan.

I really understand the ideals of Feminism being that i am a women and wanting to be treated equal.The ones in the past has helped us make good progress. People can actually see a difference from the time of slavery and even beyond to the Victorian era.

A feminist is the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men. Something that I learned about Phyllis Wheatley is that her first poem being published at the age of twelve during a time when women and slaves were unable to get an education. Something else that I learned about Phyllis Wheatley is that she was the first African American woman to earn a living from her writing.

A feminist is a person whose beliefs and behavior are based on feminism. Feminism means that, "the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men."

I learned a lot about Maria Stewart::

In Stewart's essays, she acknowledged that her life could be in danger, but asserted that she was ready to serve as a martyr for the cause. Just as David Walker had done, she also directed her essays to blacks instead of white abolitionists. She urged blacks to exercise virtue and character equal to the white standard. She believed that once whites were shown the worthiness of blacks, they would finally recognize the equality of the races.

A feminist is a woman who fights for what she believes in and who fights for their rights.
Sojourner Truth taught me that you should never give up on something that you want even if it all seems to be going wrong. She also taught me that it is good to fight for what you believe in because although you may feel like you don't make a difference, every one can help to make a change.
