Women Played a Crucial Role

During the 1960s women endured the toils of the civil rights movement alongside men. But with no female speakers at the March of Washington in 1963, they were left in the shadows of the most prolific march of their time. BET.com takes a look at the women who worked to make the march a success and the women who will speak at the National Action to Realize the Dream to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the great march.LaToya Bowlah(Photo: Express Newspapers/L360/Getty Images)
