Quote Of The Day

Pocahontas, an assertive American Indian woman who lived during the early 17th century was the first woman to have an interracial marriage with documented proof. Slavery was a rampant evil widely prevalent during the 18th and even 19th centuries, and it was women like Elizabeth Key Grinstead, Lucy Stone and Harriet Tubman who actively fought for the abolishment of slavery. American women were the pioneers in the feminist movement and today America is one of the foremost countries in terms of gender equality—which would not have been possible without the relentless work of women activists. American women have in no minor way paved the way for the emancipation of women the world over. Read on to learn more about famous American women who changed the course of world history.
