Susan B Anthony fought for her freedom and tried as hard as she could. Vincent Van Gogh fought through his mental illnesses and physical illnesses but gave up on his life. In the story Susan B Anthony Dares to Vote, Susan has to overcome the obstacle of being a woman without the ability to vote. In the passage, it says, “In November 1872, she and 15 other women in Rochester, New York, had demanded to to be registered and had voted in the national election…… Of the 16 women, only the leader, Susan B. Anthony, was put on trial.” She was trying to overcome an obstacle here because even

Women used many different methods to earn the right to vote in the Women’s Suffrage Movement. One method women used to earn support is that they organized a parade in Washington, D.C., the same day the president was coming into town so that there was large crowds. Many of the people in the crowd were men who, along with drinking also disagreed with the right for women to vote. They began to yell then even throw objects at the women walking in the parade. Eventually, the police walked away giving the men the opportunity to attack.
This will show Elizabeth’s contribution to the women’s rights movement. Elizabeth Cady Stanton pushed her nephew down a window to open the church for the first Women’s Rights convention.

The purpose of this speech is to prove that women are citizens, and should be granted the right to vote. The reason for Anthony 's speech, other than her being a women 's rights activist, is that herself and a group of her followers were unfairly jailed for having voted in the 1872 presidential election (Peck and Wilmore). The judge wouldn’t let her speak on her own defense because he believed women were too incompetent to defend themselves in court (Peck and Wilmore). In this speech Anthony goes on to say that she didn’t commit a crime but simply,”...exercised [her] citizen’s rights, guaranteed to [her] and all United States citizens...”. Anthony also emphasizes that while black males were allowed to vote by the fourteenth and fifteenth
The women of the Suffragist movement used many tactics in their pursuit of the right to vote. Calm and proud, women would participate in parades to let the population know of their existence and their cause. The women in these parades would dress in college uniforms and other such attire. Another way they attempted to receive their rights was by lobbying, meaning they went around the White House talking to senators. The final tactic I will mention is their use of sentries at the White House.
Despite the beneficial projects Planned Parenthood has participated in, riots have broken out against the facility. According to The Daily Signal, “Students for Life of America organized ‘Women Betrayed’ rallies nationwide to protest taxpayer funding for the nation’s largest abortion provider” (Scanlon). The protests could eventually lead to a decrease in funding for Planned Parenthood. The riots do not only affect the business, they also affect the patients. On June 28, 2014, a six-hour, non-violent protest broke out in front of the Boston Planned Parenthood.
According to About.com, after a few marches around nineteen twelve, Paul left NAWSA in nineteen fourteen as she co-founded the Congressional Union, later starting the National Woman 's Party in nineteen sixteen. As she found the parades to be unsuccessful, Paul resorted to picketing outside the White House, according to numerous sources. As most social protests go, picketing led the government to fine her twenty five dollars to which she, much like Anthony refused to pay. However, because this was much more of a prominent issue in that era of time, Paul and her fellow picketers were sent to the Occoquan Workhouse, a prison in Virginia. There, they were brutally treated and one was reported to be killed as they were sent to unsanitary, frigid, rat-infested cells regardless of age.
