About the Suffrage Heroes

Sojourner Truth (1798 - 1883): Born Isabella ‘Belle’ Baumfree, Sojourner Truth escaped slavery with her infant daughter to freedom in 1826. After successfully winning her son in an 1828 court case she became the first black woman to do so against a white man. During the Civil War, she took up the cause for women's suffrage, though she ultimately distanced herself due to the increasingly racist language of the women's movement.

Amelia Jenks Bloomer (1818-1894): Bloomer was an early suffragist, editor, and social activist, attending the Seneca Falls Women’s Rights Convention. She is most famous for advocating to change women’s clothing styles, though the clothing style ‘bloomers’ was not named after her. In 1849, she began editing The Lily, the first newspaper by and for women and an important publication for the suffrage movement.

Frances Harper (1825 - 1911): Harper was an abolitionist, suffragist, poet, teacher, public speaker, and writer and one of the first African American women to be published in the US. In 1851, she and William Still, chairman of the Pennsylvania Abolition Society, helped fugitive slaves on their way to Canada. Throughout her life, Harper founded and held office in many national progressive organizations. In 1894 she co-founded the National Association of Colored Women.

Marie Louise Bottineau Baldwin (1863 - 1952): Baldwin was a Métis Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians Attorney and Native American rights activist. In 1911, she took her personnel file photo for the Office of Indian Affairs wearing traditional clothing and her hair in braids, a radical act for its time. In 1913, she marched alongside white women in the Washington, DC, suffrage parade, despite organizers' attempts to segregate.

Alice Paul (1886 - 1977): Paul was an American suffragist, feminist, and women's rights activist and one of the main leaders and strategists of the campaign for the Nineteenth Amendment. Her tactics, such as the Woman Suffrage Procession and the Silent Sentinels, were integral to the successes of the campaign, resulting in the amendment's passage in 1920.
