Truth in International Women’s Day

Sojourner Truth: “Ain’I a Woman?

“Born into slavery in 1797, Isabella Baumfree, who later changed her name to Sojourner Truth became the most powerful advocates for human rights in the nineteenth century.”

“International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900s. Great unrest and critical debate were occurring among women. Women’s oppression and inequality were sparring women to become more vocal and active in campaign change. Then in 1908; 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay, and voting rights.”

NYC Mayor Adams pay tribute to International Women’s Day.
