Courageous Women who fought against Inequality in the World

S For Story/10564473
ST. GEORGE, Utah - s4story -- Amidst the hardships of inequality, there were many courageous women who fought against injustice during the 1840s. These women made a difference in the world. They spoke up and let their opinions be known. They would not be held back but took a stand for equal rights. Many wanted to vote, have a higher education, and fought against involuntary servitude. They were considered "women of courage."

When several women took a stand, their actions were looked down upon. Speaking publicly was considered improper for a woman, by the standards of the day. In a pastoral letter from the 1800s, the Council of Congregationalist Ministers of Massachusetts said a woman who speaks publicly was "unwomanly and unchristian" and it would "threaten the female character with widespread and permanent injury."

Even though it wasn't proper, many still gave their opinions. Elizabeth Stanton and Susan B. Anthony adamantly spoke against prejudice, inequality, and slavery. They encouraged women to get an education and stand up for their rights. But they were not alone. There were many others who expressed their views. These courageous women were an important part of history and made a difference.

Did you know that the first four states to give women the right to vote were Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Idaho? These states encouraged women to participate in politics and run for office. They were independent and courageous women. With this in mind, I sat down and wrote three novellas that are part of a series called "Women of Courage." Each one was inspired from the experiences of my great grandmothers.

A Mississippi Sunset is a historical romance. Laura McBride is a liberated and courageous young lady who is convinced that she can help others in her crusade for equality. She encourages women to fight for their beliefs and be heard. But she soon finds out that women who speak publicly are looked down upon. But that wasn't how Deputy William Davies felt. When he met Laura McBride, he was intrigued with her independent nature. He admired her spunk and determination to fight against slavery and involuntary servitude.
