She served as a messenger, helped fugitives, sent money and medicines and helped in all she could.

Mary Wollstonecraft ( 1759 - 1797) is regarded as one of the founding feminist philosophers, and feminists often cite both her life and work as important influences.

She was an eighteenth-century British writer, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights. Wollstonecraft is best known for A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), in which she argues that women are not naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education. She suggests that both men and women should be treated as rational beings and imagines a social order founded on reason.
With the emergence of the feminist movement at the turn of the twentieth century, Wollstonecraft's advocacy of women's equality and critiques of conventional femininity became increasingly important.

Harriet Tubman

She also was one of the most important person in the Civil War; she worked as a nurse and scout for the North. She was honored more than once by the Union Army, although she did not receive a pension for years. Eventually she led about 300 people to freedom in Canada. She also organized the Underground Railroad and helped lead slaves to freedom.
