South Carolina Aristocrat Turned Feminist Abolitionist

South Carolina Aristocrat Turned Feminist Abolitionist

Born in Charleston, South Carolina in 1805, Angelina Grimké’s future was already planned for her- she would become an enslaver and live a life of domesticity.  However, in 1829, Grimké left the South for Philadelphia and joined the Quakers. By 1837, she was a published author and recognized lecturer advocating for female rights and the abolition of slavery. She organized the first national women’s convention which brought together antislavery women to coordinate and plan a national campaign for an antislavery petition. To this day, Angelina Grimké’s work is studied in schools.
