Susan B. Anthony


Every March, the country celebrates the accomplishments of women in American history. Even though these accomplishments go back a long way, most schools didn't start focusing on women pioneers and their achievements until recently. Today, most colleges offer classes in women's history and most schools teach kids about the many contributions women have made to our country. How did this shift come about?

Who’s Who

American women's rights activist, abolitionist, and women's suffrage leader

Rosa Parks (February 4, 1913 - October 24, 2005) was a pivotal figure in the fight for civil rights. On December 1, 1955, a Montgomery, Alabama bus driver ordered Mrs. Parks to give up her seat to a white man. When she refused, she was fined and arrested. This incident prompted a city-wide bus boycott, which eventually resulted in a Supreme Court ruling that segregation on city buses is unconstitutional.

To further her cause, she created the Agricultural Workers Association (AWA) in 1960 and co-founded what would become the United Farm Workers (UFW). Huerta stepped down from the UFW in 1999, but she continues to her work to improve the lives of workers, immigrants and women.

Meet The Only Female Referee In The NBA
When Palmer first began refereeing
in the NBA in 1997, another women
entered the ranks with her, but she only lasted five years under the pressure and scrutiny that came with them being the only female referees. 
Although it took time for players and fans to accept her presence, Palmer is now just as respected as any of her male counterparts, and Palmer is happy to know that she has left the door open for other women to follow in her footsteps.

In addition to inspiring Ms. White to join the field of teaching, Mary Jane McLeod Bethune (July 10, 1875 – May 18, 1955) was an American educator and civil rights leader best known for starting a school for African-American students that eventually became Bethune-Cookman University and for being an advisor to President Franklin Roosevelt. She was known as "The First Lady of The Struggle” because of her commitment to bettering African Americans.

Harriet Tubman (1820 - 1913) escaped slavery
in Maryland 1849 and traveled north. She then
helped hundreds of other slaves flee to the
north to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Mrs. Tubman helped John Brown recruit soldiers for his raid on Harpers Ferry (1859). She spied for the Union during the US Civil War. After the war, she lived in the state of New York, and founded the Harriet Tubman Home for Aged Negroes. Mrs. Tubman devoted her life to fighting slavery and championing
the rights of women.
