11 Oct Maya Angelou
Maya spoke for liberation. In the 1950s, the role of women was to stay at home. In the 1950s, women were not taken seriously in business or in government. She was a second class citizen, treated as the property of her husband. But in the 1950s, women like Maya Angelou were learning to speak up, to reject a life in chains. It is because so many women spoke loudly, that a revolution began and changed the world for generations to come.
