On May 23rd, 1810, Sarah Margaret Fuller, a major journalist who especially advocated for women's rights, was born. Margaret was homeschooled as well as taught at the Lyceum for Young Ladies. She loved to read, and later on, used this hobby to become the first woman to have access to Harvard Library. Growing up, Fuller had hoped to become
a journalist, but after the death of her father, she took it upon herself to look after her family.
Margaret later moved to Massachusetts, where she was offered a job of editing 'The Dial', a magazine surrounding the Transcendentalist's Movement, a famous political movement at the time. The movement encouraged personal transformation and had emphasis on the goodness
of people and nature. She found herself writing for more magazines and newspapers, putting a name for herself out in the community, which would later become a quite famous one. Through her writing in magazines, newspapers, books, etc. Fuller built her social platform and used it to preach against social injustices. She wrote about women's rights to education, women's independency, the unjustice of slavery, the unfair treatment against Native Americans, and much more. These topics would later be used by popular activists and campaigners at the time,
creating more opportunities for social justice. She died in 1850, when a boat taking her from Europe to America had hit a sandbank.
Margaret Fuller has shown us that by using your platform for good and promoting ideas against injustice, you are able to make a significant difference in your society and future. Fuller once said, "Today a reader, tomorrow a leader," and had stuck true to this by using her knowledge as a reader by teaching others and rooting against inequality. Fuller lead an
influential life, impacting others to this day through her newspaper entries, magazine articles and books. She is well known for her book, Woman in the Nineteenth Century.
