the TROUBLEMAKERS

Throughout the years, there have been many people who challenged the established rules and norms of the time. These people were often vilified and labeled as “troublemakers” during this period. As years have gone by, the narrative has often flipped, as they and their actions have become to be widely known as heroic rather than troublesome. Obviously, it is impossible to highlight every trailblazer throughout the years; the people below are a small sample of these figures within the ever-continuing struggle.
