For example, a positive point is how women were trying to become independent, as well as gain their individual rights. “In a lengthy series of resolutions, Cady Stanton and the others called for an end to all discrimination based on sex.

The women of this movement were fighting for something they believed they deserve. Because of the Seneca Falls Convention and the Declaration of Sentiments and Resolution, women were able to express their own opinions.

The Renaissance: a period where women’s independence grew or a time of no change? When people think of the Renaissance they think of a period full of great change for women´s roles in society. In reality, it didn't change how women could live in a lot of ways.

Erik Larson’s Devil in the White City is a nonfiction novel compiling a variety of sources to tell the story of Chicago circa 1893. A symbol of American exceptionalism, Chicago’s Columbian Exposition shaped the city tremendously -- whilst harboring a far more nebulous and sinister truth. Larson uses this setting to make a statement about the White and Black City, an elucidation upon the nature of the Gilded Age. Changing ideals and an evolving society made urban America a crucible for both atrocity and ingenuity, madness and brilliance. He uses two famously dedicated men to embody these characteristics, their divergence only revealing their parallels.
Nobody wants to talk about the women's reform movement and Nobody wants to be reminded about it. Nobody wants to be reminded of how devoted women were to gain their right to vote in order to achieve a reform. The women's reform movement began in 1848 and went on until 1920. The women's reform movement consist of peculiar reform movements pertaining to women's rights, such as abolition, suffrage, temperance, and education.

During the progressive era, there were many organization’s that arose to better the American society. Two Progressive reforms that sought to help women were the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, and the Women Suffrage Association. The Women’s Christian Temperance Union or WCTU was founded in November 1874 in Cleveland, Ohio by Frances Willard and Annie Turner Wittenmeyer.

ome significant reform movements that impacted society were Labor reform and women's rights. In the 1900’s, particularly 1910 women were not respected and seen as second-class citizens. Woman were brought up as children to learn to serve others and focus on the men before there own. They were expected to be full time wives and mothers, and not having an option on how to live. Susan B. Anthony, Alice Paul, Lucy Stone, and Ida B. Wells are some of the woman who started reforms for woman suffrage.
Several people equate being politically active to voting, however, even though women were denied the right to vote, historians and scholars recognize that women still played an active political role throughout the “Revolutionary Period”. The passing of the Townshend Act played part in growing women’s political self-awareness. One way that women were politically active was by boycotting British goods. They homespun their cloth rather than using imported cloth. They also substituted herbal teas and coffee after the British placed new regulations on imported non- British tea.
