For millennia, women have left their mark on the world, at times changing the course of history and at other times influencing small but significant spheres of life.
Some, though they lived centuries ago, are still alive in popular culture; music and poetry by the Roman Catholic abbess Hildegard can be heard in contemporary recordings, and Murasaki Shikibu 's The Tale of Genji is one of the greatest works of Japanese literature. Many women overcame the oppression of their surroundings through determination and ingenuity: Harriet Tubman escaped slavery and risked her life helping others to freedom. Other women grew up in privileged surroundings; the philosopher and mathematician Hypatia and the historian Ban Zhao were born to families that permitted the education of girls in an era when females were rarely even taught to read. Not all of these women changed the world for the good. Filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl produced propaganda films that glorified Adolf Hitler's brutal Third Reich. Many suffered through the deeds of Jiang Qing , who fought bitterly to advance her own political powers during China's Cultural Revolution. Some were warriors such as Boudicca , who led a bloody rebellion against the Romans. Others advocated peace:

    DAWN­ING AF­FEC­TIONS. “Why not,” asked Dr. La­timer, “write a good, strong book which would be help­ful to them? I think there is an amount of dor­mant tal­ent among us, and a large field from which to gath­er ma­te­ri­als for such a book.” “I would do it, will­ing­ly, if I could; but one needs both leisure and mon­ey to make a suc­cess­ful book. There is ma­te­ri­al among us for the broad­est come­dies and the deep­est tragedies, but, be­sides mon­ey and leisure, it needs pa­tience, per­se­ver­ance, courage, and the hand of an artist to weave it in­to the lit­er­ature of the coun­try.” “Miss Leroy, you have a large and rich ex­pe­ri­ence; you pos­sess a vivid imag­ina­tion and glow­ing fan­cy. Write, out of the full­ness of your heart, a book to in­spire men and wom­en with a deep­er sense of jus­tice and hu­man­ity.” “Doc­tor,” replied Io­la, “I would do it if I could, not for the mon­ey it might bring, but for the good it might do. But who be­lieves any good can come out of the black Nazareth?”

Our masters always tried to hide Book learning from our eyes; Knowledge did'nt agree with slavery 'Twould make us all too wise. But some of us would try to steal A little from the book, And put the words together, And learn by hook or crook. I remember Uncle Caldwell, Who took pot liquor fat And greased the pages of his book, And hid it in his hat. And had his master ever seen The leaves upon his head, He'd have thought them greasy papers, But nothing to be read. And there was Mr. Turner's Ben, Who heard the children spell, And picked the words right up by heart, And learned to read 'em well. Well, the Northern folks kept sending The Yankee teachers down; And they stood right up and helped us, Though Rebs did sneer and frown.

    How often would she lay her dear hands upon my head, and clasp my
    hands in hers and say, 'Paul, I want you to live so that you can always
    feel that there is no eye before whose glance you will shrink, no voice
    from whose tones your heart will quail, because your hands are not
    clean, or your record not pure,' and I feel glad to-day that the precepts and example of that dear mother have given tone and coloring to my life; and though she has been in her grave for many years, her memory and her words are still to me an ever present inspiration." "Yes Paul; I remember your mother. I wish! Oh well there is no use wishing. But if all Christians were like her, I would have more faith in their religion." "But John the failure of others is no excuse for our own derelictions." "Well, I suppose not. It is said, the way Jerusalem was kept clean, every man swept before his own door. And so you will not engage in the business?"

    Frances Ellen Watkins Harper
    Frances Ellen Watkins Harper was a gifted poet, author, and lecturer. Her humble beginnings had a profound affect on her thirst for knowledge and justice for the Negro slave. As life and its many challenges unfolded for Harper during the 1800’s, she embraced those obstacles with grace and dignity as she endured the struggles of the abolitionist movement. Therefore, this paper will examine her background, provide a critical analysis of five of her poems, and a personal commentary will be provided.
    According to Hill, Harper was born on September 24, 1824 in Baltimore, Maryland. She was the daughter of free slaves and was orphaned at the age of three. Fortunately, Harper was placed in the loving care of her uncle, William Watkins, who deeply influenced her life. William Watkins was a “self educated minister, a shoemaker by trade, and a staunch abolitionist, who taught her the classics, the Bible, rhetoric, and antislavery writings” (Hill, 345). He also had a major influence on Harper’s political, religious, and social views (Sara A. Therkelsen and Chanomi Maxwell-Parish,

Born free in the slave state of Maryland , Frances Ellen Watkins was orphaned at an early age. She attended the William Watkins Academy for Negro Youth in Baltimore , an institution noted for rigorous training in a classical curriculum of languages, biblica studies, and elocution , and for developing professiona and religious leaders of unusual personal integrity and political activity. Harper was an exemplary alumna. At age twenty-five, she moved to Columbus, Ohio, to become the first woman professor at the newly formed Union Seminary (later Wilberforce University ). Exiled from Maryland by state laws that prohibited entry of free blacks into the state and frustrated by the increasing power of slaveholders, in 1853 Harper moved to Philadelphia , where she lived at an Underground Railroad station and devoted her life and literature to abolition and other social reform movements. Her literary production at that time included poems and essays such as
