We will explore the lives of:

Sojourner Truth: Born a slave in 1797 near Kingston, N.Y. and escaped with her infant daughter to freedom in 1826. She then filed a lawsuit when her son who was illegally sold into slavery and became the first African-American woman to win a case in court against a white man. She became an abolitionist and women's rights activist. After the Civil War, she tried unsuccessfully to secure land grants from the federal government for former slaves.

Matilda Jocelyn Gage: Born in 1826. She worked closely with Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony in founding the suffrage movement and became a Native American rights activist and adopted member of the Mohawk Tribe, abolitionist, free thinker, and prolific author. She served as president of both the N.Y. State Suffrage Association and the National Woman's Suffrage Association. Her views on feminism were considered too radical, so in 1890 she organized the Woman's National Liberal Union, to assert woman's natural right to self-government; preserve the principles of civil and religious liberty; emphasize the danger of a union of church, and denounce the doctrine of woman's inferiority.

Lucy Ann Lobdell: Also known as "The Female Hunter", was born in 1829 to a working class family of farmers. After leaving home, she became transgendered as Joseph Lobdell. He became an ordained minister, started a singing school, moved to the frontier, married a woman and lived a dangerous life in the face of 19th century social restriction and gender norms, running from the law and hate crimes.

Grandmother Twylah Nitsch: Born in 1913 on the Cattaraugus Native American Reservation. She was raised by her parents, grandfather, a medicine man, and grandmother in the Wolf Clan of the Seneca Nation in the Iroquois Confederacy. She formed the Seneca Indian Historical Society, teaching workshops throughout the world. In 1999 she received the Living Treasures of north America Heritage Award in honor of her life's work.
