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.
