#Empowered ~ Coretta Scott King

#Empowered ~ Coretta Scott King

Often wrongly defined by her husband, Coretta Scott King contributed a great deal to women’s rights alongside Martin Luther King Jr.’s Civil Rights Movement. She aided in the founding of NOW (National Organisation for Women) in 1966 & played a prominent role in the organisations development. A lifelong advocate for human rights, she publicly criticised male Civil Rights Leaders that excluded women & often specifically addressed black women in her speeches. She was active in the LGBT movement, protesting and speaking throughout the 80s and 90s until her death in 2006. After the death of her husband, Coretta Scott King campaigned to have Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday made into a national holiday – and succeeded. #WifeGoals indeed.

“I don’t believe you can stand for freedom for one group of people and deny it to others.”
