Repost from @mon.brainlab using @RepostRegramApp - Repost from @Forbes (@womenatforbes using @RepostRegramApp - True to her words, Ernestine Rose never stopped fighting for what she believed in. She left her home in Poland at age 17 after suing her father for forcing her into an arranged marriage. She launched her public speaking career in England and there helped found the Association of All Classes of All Nations in support of equality. After she emigrated to NYC in 1836, she launched a campaign petitioning for the New York Married Women’s Property Act, which was passed in 1848. Rose was elected president of the National Women’s Rights Convention in 1854, and, with Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, founded the National Women Suffrage Association in 1869. #WomensEqualityDay#ShePersisted
For those of you who are not aware, there is a phenomenal women's museum right here in California. Give them a follow @womensmuseum -you'll be glad you did.
Repost: @womensmuseum - Unfortunately, for centuries many stories from history were just that: his stories. Women were written out of history. Their lives and accomplishments were simply left out of history books, making women invisible. After generations of students learning history lessons featuring few if any women, it's no surprise most people assumed women throughout history had done nothing important.

Best use of marketing dollars EVER. “The remaining historical female statues adorned with flowers include Gertrude Stein, Golda Meir, Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Joan of Arc. Old Navy, which has a leadership team that is 65% female, says the flower installations are meant to honor the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of these and all women around the world.” 💜👊🏻💜🤛🏻💜✊🏾💜 #womensday2018#womensequalityday#feministart#futureisfemale#oldnavy
