NYSUT 2016 Women's History posterNYSUT celebrates Women's History Month in March with a free poster highlighting Harriet Tubman, an African-American abolitionist, humanitarian and Union spy during the American Civil War. In the post-Civil War era, Tubman also participated in the women's suffrage movement. Tubman escaped from slavery in 1849 and, four years later, led a series of rescue missions to free enslaved family and friends using the Underground Railroad, a network of safe houses and antislavery activists.
