Abolitionist and suffragist Harriet Tubman was born Araminta Harriet Ross. Brutally beaten by slave masters when she was hired out, she suffered a severe head wound when a heavy metal object was thrown at her. Without proper medical treatment she suffered disabling headaches and seizures. Using the underground railroad, Tubman made more than thirteen missions to rescue more than 70 slaves including her family members. Later in her life she promoted women's suffrage. When a white woman asked her if she believed women ought to have the vote she replied, "I suffered enough to believe it." The ally of Susan B. Anthony was caught between suffragists and abolitionists who each wanted their own group to achieve the vote first. Feminists for Life honors Harriet Tubman, a woman who refused to choose. She died on March 10, 1913.
