Sojourner Truth - 1851

By Invitation Only -- Feminist Art, Reproductive Rights, Educational, Poster. $12.00, via Etsy.

Sojourner Truth poses for a portrait while knitting at a small table. Sojourner Truth, whose legal name was Isabella Van Wagener, was born into slavery but later freed. She worked as an abolitionist, a suffragette, and an evangelist and traveled throughout the Midwest drawing large crowds.

Qiu Jin wore masculine attire before the Qing Dynasty and system of imperial rule fell (in other words, during a time when traditional Confucian values about women’s proper place were still dominant). She made war with the emperor and was beheaded. She’s touted as China’s first feminist…but perhaps we could even say she’s proto-genderqueer? I snagged this photo from the wonderful book Chinese Women Writers and the Feminist Imagination, 1905–1948 by Yan Haiping.
