Women used many different ways to earn the right to vote in the Women's Suffrage Movement. The first method was parading in the streets.

Many people watched the parade. The president read about it in the newspaper. Another method used was picketing in front of the White House. Women picketed all day long for months. The women did this so the President would see them every time he came in and out of the White House gates. It was also in the newspaper. A lot of people stopped by to read the signs.
In the years of this new century, the country has not had such a great chance to fix problems that we all face, except for now, as a result of the financial gift you have given. Through your generosity, I know that you will be able to give a helping hand to the people that will be affected by these reforms so that they may have a better quality of life. This winter of 1913 in the United States had made me think of all the people that need help and to have equal rights. Having equal rights and fixing the broken cracks of society is a very important responsibility to help those less fortunate than us, isn’t it Aunt Bessie? With the million dollars you have given to me, I will help others who do not have as good of an opportunity by distributing
Resulting in deaths of black people of all ages. The stereotypes that portray black people as dangerous and savage has persisted decades after its creation and now more than ever even though its results aren’t the same and slavery has been abolished black people continue to suffer the consequences in various forms. From being afraid of black people because they seem suspicious, to believing that the victim of this whole situation are the dangerous ones when in reality they were part of such vile and very well planned atrocity to cover the real criminals of taking over the world. I am of course not saying that white people are all criminals and do not intend to say that whites are the ones that should be suffering all the misfortunes that black
During the years 1825-1850, in the United States, was the age of reform. A time where nationalism and pride grew in the hearts of the American people, that they struggled to bring back the true meaning upon which their country was built. Social, intellectual and religious reform movements in the United States during the years 1825-1850, caused the expansion of democratic ideals through the reformers and reform movements; such as the Women’s Rights Movement, Temperance Movement, Abolitionist Movement, Asylum Reform, Jail Reform, Transcendentalism and the Second Great Awakening, by introducing the idea in the increase of women’s rights, encouraging an abstinence from alcohol, abolishing slavery, improving the treatment of the mentally unstable,
If we want to get something great it will take a lot of effort. This is exactly what women did to help get their goal on August 18, 1920. Although many thought they would not win their battle, they did. They made it possible for all women to have the ability to vote. What they accomplished, showed that through willpower and courage, anything can be achieved. Although many claimed that giving women the right to vote was not the smart decision, women proved they were worthy by organizing three things: parades, protests, and conventions, getting the president on their side, and winning the final vote. These three things alone attest to what they were able to accomplish, not to mention all the protestings and work behind the scenes to make this
Susan B. Anthony was born into a Quaker family, with the hope that everyone would one day be treated equal. She denied a chance to speak at a temperance convention because she was a woman(Susan B. Anthony). From this point on, she knew that she needed to make a change. Susan B. Anthony, because of her intense work involving women 's’ rights, highly influenced all of the societies and beliefs that were yet to come. She employed a huge role in our history because of the fact that she advocated for women’s rights, for the integration of women in the workforce, and for the abolition of slavery. The contributions provided by Anthony led to a lifetime of new rights and opportunities for both women and slaves. Men dominated the workforce, the government,

In the 1900’s, life started to changed for women; they started to gain a higher position in society, they were able to demand more rights and they started thinking and acting freely and independently. Although the process towards women’s rights was challenging, it was all worth it for future generations once the 19th Amendment was ratified. Starting of by the famous Seneca Falls Convention, the fight for women’s rights began. Many attempts were made to fight the oppression like conventions, campaigns, people, propaganda, etc. It was a very long and harsh process to gain their rights; women witnessed other races overcoming discrimination while they were still ignored. For these reasons, they formed many organizations such as the National Suffrage
A woman who fought for freedom; a woman who fought for rights, Daisy Lee Gatson Bates used her strength to argue against the negative words and threats spoken by many racists. During my research on this journalist, publisher and civil activist, Daisy Bates was an African American who wanted to end racial segregation, for it is a topic she strongly disagreed to. Therefore, Bates influenced change not only in her community, however in the entire world. Daisy Bates began the fight against racial segregation in Arkansas with the help of her husband, Lucious Christopher, also known as L.C. Bates. Together, they founded the Arkansas State Press. This African-American newspaper stood up for civil rights and Daisy Bates decided to join the movement. She later became president of the National Association for
In 1909 Ida B. Wells delivered the above mentioned speech at the NAACP’s first annual conference held in Atlanta, Georgia. The speech was and still is, deeply touching. Moreover, mere words alone are a far cry from living through the horrendous cruelty being played out on a daily basis. The horrific brutality proved that a number of people were disconnected to a simple conception of" love thy neighbor" while claiming to be children of God. It is wholly unfathomable the acts of depravity within the soul of another human. For the preceding generations these acts of the past make it almost impossible to comprehend. Ida B. Wells ' life was filled with unimaginable despair, frustration and injustice and became the voice for those who had suffered, which took a great deal of courage for a woman of her time. It is usually the plight and the fight of those oppressed to make the needed changes in society.
It is a tremendous honor to accept the Outstanding Investigative Journalism Award on behalf of Ida B. Wells. And to think her journey all started on one train trip. When Ida was in her early twenties, she was taking a train and seated in the ladies car. Despite the 1875 Civil Rights Act, she was then asked by the conductor of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad Company to give her seat to a white man, and to sit in the ‘Jim Crow’, or black, car. She declined saying that the car ahead was a smoking one and she was in the ladies, and proposed to stay where she was. The conductor then attempted to drag Wells out of her seat, but as she said herself: “the moment he caught hold of my arm I fastened my teeth in the back of his hand.” Wells was then ejected from the train.
The declaration of independence states that all men and women are created equal. This document, along with the constitution, is what the administration of the United States was founded on. The men who created these documents were citizens striving for equal rights and representation in government. Ironically, these rights the founding fathers worked so hard to create for themselves were not granted to women in their newly established nation. Fortunately, due to the tireless work of decades of activist’s, laws have changed, amendments added to the constitution, and rights granted to those who were previously unjustly denied. One of these victories for women’s rights occurred when women were granted the right
