DBQ Communism and Women’s Rights Adelaida Urrea In the twentieth century, communist movements encouraged the involvement of women to their societies, depending on them for the development of modern societies based primarily on equality. Therefore women started to gain political equality and economic power through the different opportunities given by the Communist Party that allowed them to incorporate as respectable members in society.

Anthony later became publisher of The Revolution, a periodical published in 1868 (Susan, Britannica). Anthony and Stanton were determined to have women’s rights, so they created a suffrage petition, and started getting signatures on the State and even National level (Biography). Many lectures were given by Anthony in her lifetime. The most that has ever happened was one-hundred in one year (On This Day). Anthony and Stanton must have been very determined to gain women’s suffrage rights!
One of the most well known women's suffrage activist, Susan B. Anthony, held a two-day women’s rights convention, with the help of a few other women, in Seneca Falls, New York, commencing the movement. Almost 200 women convened at The Seneca Falls Convention which was the first woman's rights convention in the United States. The meeting launched the women’s suffrage movement, helping women organize and petition for their rights. Along with the women activist leaders of the suffrage movement came two organizations, the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) and the National Woman’s Party (NWP). More than seven decades after the Seneca Falls Convention, their combined efforts ratified the 19th Amendment, enfranchising women.
Anthony, a rising leader in the woman's suffrage movement, made outstanding contributions for women to gain the right to vote. Susan was a leading force in merging the Woman's Right Society and the Anti-Slavery Society into one organization named American Equal Rights Association. Susan could hardly gain these achievements without her important partner, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who encouraged her to reside the meeting and collaborated with her on various movements for many years. The first meeting that could be regarded as the warm-up of the woman's suffrage movement was held in the home of Stanton, whose enthusiasm and leadership had a significant impact on Susan. Susan remained unmarried during her lifetime and devoted much of her time to the cause of woman’s rights.
The role of women during the war was crucial, as they entered the workforce to take up all of the jobs that their male counterparts left behind to fight in active combat. For the first time these women had extra spending money, a sense of independence and more importunely, a sense of purpose. They took up clerical jobs but also jobs in machinery and engineering. They were no longer merely housewives who cared for their children and husbands, but working women who were just as skilled and capable as their male peers. Their immense pride and purpose led to higher morale and better productivity, improving America’s economy and morale as a whole.
During that World War era, women had to step up to perform critical army jobs while men had to fight. According to the Constitution of South Africa (1996), women have equal opportunity and should be given the right to equal opportunities in the military for their professional growth. Sexual harassment policies are in place that include a wide range of unwanted or uninvited activities causing sexual favours. This concludes
There are many leading figures who took a stand for women's rights, Alice Paul is one of them. During the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, women had very little rights and Alice Paul wanted to change that. Alice was taught at a young age that women and men should be equal. Paul decided that she wanted to make this a reality. In 1912,Paul became a member of the National American Woman Suffrage Association.
Women in Sparta took care of most things they kept order between the slaves. Women had their kids helping out the shop when they were old enough. The men in Athens thought that women having any type of power was wrong and they blamed the fall of Sparta on women. Women were not the cause of Sparta's fall but they did have a big impact on other city-states. Historians do know that Spartan women were known for their natural beauty, and that they were forbidden from wearing any kind of makeup or enhancements.
Roosevelt was born October 11, 1884, into an affluent and politically prominent family (Michals). Being born into a politically involved family allowed her to grow up with the familiarity of the political world and has allowed women to have a more pronounced voice in political decisions. Roosevelt not only impacted the way of women politically, but she also had a positive impact on women economically. Becoming the First Lady in the White House enabled Roosevelt to have even more of an impact on political decisions that were made. She was a leader in her own right and was involved in numerous decisions that were made to the U.S. economy (History.com Staff, “Eleanor Roosevelt”).
In the article “Women in ancient Athens”, the author says “A respectable woman’s main role in ancient Athens was to stay home, keep pretty, and bear children” to show that if women were expected to these things they surely couldn’t have been able to spend money or things like that. Women could not earn money. If a women was supposed to stay home and clean the house and knit, they wouldn’t have had been able
Women have always worked at home, minding the children and cooking for their husband while finding time to make clothes for their family. In the nineteenth century, women got the chance to do things they did at home for money. Women got to spread their wings a little and teach or sew clothes or write for money. They did have trouble getting the right to do so. With the women suffrage movement and the United States needing to do things instead of slaves, women got their independence.
Some of the 68 women that signed me are Lucretia Mott, and Elizabeth Stanton, and Amy Post also attended the convention. When Elizabeth Stanton, Lucretia Mott created me I was demanding women the right to vote, and that all men and women are equal and that women have to be treated like the others. Elizabeth C. Stanton read me at the Seneca Falls Convention on July 20th, 1848 and was also followed by the passage of 12 resolutions to women’s rights. The only resolution that I called for that did not pass which called for women’s suffrage (the right for women to vote), (which I was mad about).
The first women in Australian that were able to vote were in South Australia, in 1895 , and quickly, other states and territories followed. This leap in women’s rights changed Australia into a nation of equality, and moved the nation into the next stage of cultural independence. Vida Goldstein was a Victorian citizen who followed in her mother’s footsteps in becoming a social reformer and a suffragist. She was firmly encouraged by her parents to become educated and independent, and this led her to become the leader in Victoria for women’s equality.
