Clinton firmly believed that women, as a whole, play a significant role in humanity and should receive equal treatment, just like any man.

Today, millions of women can implement their rights to vote in all elections in the united states of America, but this (rights) did not come easily to those women who sacrifice their lives to make this happen.

She advocated for the rights of women to vote because she believes in equal rights and justice for all citizens. The speech was very successful because of the use of ethos, pathos, and logos.
The central idea in Eleanor Roosevelt: A Life of Discovery is about women’s rights. To begin, Mrs. Roosevelt, the First Lady and feminist, held press conferences exclusively for women reporters to help ensure their jobs during the Depression (Freedman 128). This was extremely helpful to women considering the fact that the Depression was the deepest and longest-lasting economic downtown in the history of the Western industrialized world. Eleanor Roosevelt was a hero to myriad hard-working women because she guaranteed them that they would not lose their job because they were just females; they are equal to everybody else, and if they deserve to have their job, they will keep their job. Next, Eleanor Roosevelt joined the Women’s Trade Union League

As the reform of law had to be agreed by the government, this idea behind the militancy and attacks on both private as well as public properties were highlighted as Emmeline exclaimed, “There is something that governments care far more for than human life, and that is the security of property, and so it is through property that we shall strike the enemy.” While participating in such activities was effective since it drew attention to the cause, doing so required a substantial commitment from the woman who broke social mores and drew attention also to herself. Every militant act of the W. S. P. U. required bravery from each member and Pankhurst encouraged them through resisting the government, even to the point of being sentenced to time in prison. Her campaign was further strengthen by her exclamation that women had suffered for their families, but never for themselves, and thus, women also have the rights to express themselves by exercising political rights. The numerous strikes, and public disruptions has caused many imprisonments of the WSPU members, including Pankhurst and her daughter, but nothing stopped them from fighting for their political rights.
Minnie had finally achieved what she had spent so much time fighting for but this accomplishment was great and it was a milestone for women in the state of teas but it wasn’t enough for Minnie she set her sights out for something bigger and better which was an amendment that would grant women throughout America the right to vote. In order to achieve this Minnie made arrangements with United States Senator from Texas Morris Sheppard in 1917 for a conference in his Washington, D.C. office for women to state their perspectives on the proposed suffrage amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

Regarding Anderson Cooper 's town hall meeting with the three Republican candidates last night: After the meeting, Laura Ingraham made a comment on what Mr. Trump could do to encourage women (some of whom are offended by his comments, issues, and opinions) to vote for him. To paraphrase, she suggested Mr. Trump embrace the fact that there are many, many intelligent, articulate, strong women in our country - some of whom he should place on his staff to help run our country if he 's elected. What an excellent idea! The country needs to get back on track to Make America Great Again, and women should be a part of that
Once the women’s parade reached the Treasury Building, one hundred women and children began a show of how both struggling through the years. Also women were pushing for equality between men and women would not stop until they had gotten what they wanted. The women 's events started with “The Star Spangled Banner” and ended with a dove of peace being released. New York Times named this pageant as “one of the most impressively beautiful spectacles ever staged in this country”. This protest gained so much attention that president Wilson (who was running for president at the time) came to see what was going on.
Eleanor Roosevelt is an inspiration for me, as a woman, and anyone who have felt the pressures of conforming to stand up strongly for their own personal beliefs despite societal limitations. Completely changing the role of the First Lady, Roosevelt actively promoted the careers of many women and encouraged them to enter the public life more. She became the protector of those most likely to be left on the margins– particularly women, African-Americans, and children- and fought for their rights. If Eleanor Roosevelt was alive today, I would ask what factors inspired her to persevere through harsh criticism, ridicule, and disapproval. From her dictating mother-in-law to parts of the American population, opposition for her battle against inequality

Berkin also goes in-depth about the events each women had to go through from different regions of the colonies and from different backgrounds. The author doesn’t hesitate to introduce ladies of different ideas and personalities.
