When has the written word sparked change?


What are some examples of writing that has raised awareness in a way that brought social change? This can be an historical event, or an example from your experience. Even if the change is seen in the actions of a few people or a community, it is social change. To give more choices to respond, how do you feel as a writer about the statement, "The pen is mightier than the sword?" Any examples? A new hub as an answer would be awesome.

    Excellent contribution to the discussion, Manatita. Another angle on this would be to ask, what is constant and what is change.

    Thanks for your response. Has the book brought new awareness that has sparked social change?
