The Grimke Sisters (Women's Rights, Social Activists)

grimke.jpgPioneering sisters Sarah and Angelina Grimke eloquently fought the injustices of slavery, racism and sexism during the mid-19th century.

They were among the first female abolitionists to speak publicly against slavery, an important political topic. 

Angelina became the first woman to address a legislative body when she spoke to the Massachusetts State Legislature on women's rights and abolition in 1893.
