Marie Jenney Howe provides a monologue ridiculing anti-suffragists. Howe begins by stating a common shared thought all suffragist have: woman suffrage is unnatural. Howe begins ridiculing anti-suffragists by stating how it should be unheard of that there should be equality between the genders. It would irrational and a difficult concept to explain to children. Howe uses a satirized tone to mock the logic as to why women should be prevented from voting.
The past advanced the equal rights for women and ceased inequality for women in politics. Women have significantly gained improved rights and it is still improving to this day. Women gained the right to vote, they gained the right to new opportunities that men had, and they have no limitations to what they choose to do. Women are able to decide their own decisions and create a path for themselves instead of relying on the men. What if the women were to have all the power instead of the men?
Women’s movement was a movement that changed the whole world. It opened up people’s eyes and the views on how women should be treated. During this decade, women took part in the antislavery movement discovering that they faced oppression closer to home. They felt that they are not made to stay at home and take care of children, but to go out in the world and do the things that the men could do. Therefore, as time went on women started to take part in different things like applying for jobs, and getting their education.
Social movements, such as the Women’s Rights Movement and the Civil Rights Movement, are what helped to shape victimology into what it is today. Individual people took a stand for what was wrongfully done to them and demanded a change no matter what the cost entailed. Would you be willing to fight against injustice being done to you? The Women’s Rights Movement began as fight for the “right to vote, [to put an end to] domestic violence, sexual assault, and [to promote] temperance,” however, their goal in the fight extended for “victims of rape and domestic violence while still pushing for equal treatment with men in all areas,” after women achieved their initial goals (Victim Services Network, 2010).
Women's rights during the 1920's progressed in a cultural and economical way. In the this time period 25% of women were unemployed. Women had office jobs and jobs as telephone operators. There wasn't anymore bias towards women who were married with families or black women.
The progressive era, a period in American history between the 1890s and 1920s, was a time of widespread social activism and political reform. This period saw the formation of labor unions and the implementation of antitrust laws. Most importantly, this time saw a rise in activists who fought for the extension of equal rights for women. Notable advocates at the time were Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Margaret Higgins Sanger; both lobbied on the liberty of married woman and the freedom womanhood. These women, among others, saw this era as an opportune time to demand their rights.
Americans in Western states have had womans rights for almost 20 years longer than those in the east. The United States was very progressive with Women's Rights, some parts more than others. Wyoming was the first state to pass the Women's Suffrage Act, this was in 1869 ( Imbornoni ) It was not until 1917 that any state in the east passed the bill, and the first was New York. Between those two times, 11 other states in the West had already passed the bill.
America gained its independence in 1776 with the expectation that every American should have liberty and equality. However, American women did not have the right to vote until 1920, which was almost more than 140 years after the United States was established. Women could do little to protect themselves and promote their careers due to being treated unequally and inferior to men. During the 19th and the early 20th century, women were working hard and fighting for gender equality, so that more and more women could live a better life with basic civil rights in their hometowns. In reality, women’s equality was challenged by traditional conventions in the fields of biological difference in sexes, religion and gender roles, and different perspectives towards these conventions of different people made women’s civil rights controversial.

Because of the frustrations held by these women, it the led to the start of feminist movements. The late 1950s and 60s became years of change for women with people becoming more vocal about equal rights for women. This led to President Kennedy, in 1961, establishing the Commission on the Status of Women which examined issues relating to women because of the growing interest in women’s rights (Sink).
Equality is supposed to be for everyone. Years ago, there was no equality, at least forth women anyway. This all changed when something extraordinary happened. Inequality for women such as roles in jobs, voting rights, and much more led to an uprising in the 20th century known as the women’s suffrage movement.
