8th of March International Women's Day. Rosa Parks.

💮Remarkable Women. 8th of march international women's day.


Rosa Parks⁠ ⁠ Known as the ‘mother of the #civilrights movement’, American history remembers Rosa Parks as the brave freedom fighter who refused to give up her seat on a bus, an act of rebellion that helped trigger the end of #segregation. Few people, by comparison, are aware of the other main focus of her activism: tackling the relentless sexual and domestic violence experienced by black women.⁠ ⁠ Working as an investigator for the NAACP, Rosa collected stories from the female black community and organised national media opportunities, urging #blackwomen to speak out about their #struggles. Her work also extended to the protection of rights for #female prisoners.⁠ ⁠ ⁠. ⁠.⁠ .⁠ .⁠
