She grabbed America’s attention through various tactics, including marches and picketing in front of the White House, and fought for equality until her death. As a young girl, Alice Paul had originally been introduced to the women’s suffrage movement through her mother, who would often take her to
People that were for women vote said that they do so much work and deal with so many bad things in work, so why can't they vote. (artifact 3) They used many different strategies to gain the right to vote like moral persuasion. The Women's Christian Temperance Movement fought for the ban on production and sale of alcohol. The 19th amendment was passed in 1920 the women had the right to vote. (artifact
Women’s opportunities were severely limited, and her narrative was prescribed to her. Gloria Steinem was born the granddaughter of a committee member of the National Woman Suffrage Association, so activism and women’s rights had been tackled in her family far before she was born. Steinem’s parents split up early on in her life, resulting in her mother’s financial instability. Steinem later accredited her mother’s inability to keep a job to the hostile attitudes towards women in the workspace. In addition to this, her mother’s experiences with mental illness also exposed Steinem to social injustices that were pivotal in sparking her involvement in the feminist movements.
The speech is highlighted as Chisholm carefully builds an affirmative case for change,
Anti Feminists continued to degrade and dehumanize women creating tension between the nation. The Philadelphia Public Ledger and Daily Transcript wrote, “ every true hearted female will instantly feel that the Seneca Falls Convention is unwomanly” this specific ledger sent the message that if a women is actually a women they should know that this convention was nonsense. This degraded women and hushed their voices. The statement shut women 's ideas out by saying to just go along with what everyone else thought about women. There was no reason that the Seneca Falls event was unwomanly.
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. In the speech “Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage”, Catt delivered her message for women’s right from a firsthand account of what she had experienced as a woman living in the United States of America in the 19th century. 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.
Anthony was raised as an independent and outspoken woman, and she never married anyone (Susan, History). Miss Anthony’s childhood and birth had affected her in many ways, especially her beliefs on women’s rights and what she did to help women gain more rights. Anthony chose to participate in civil disobedience to fight for women’s rights because she believed that women were equal to men, and they deserved the same rights. Anthony started out by wanting to speak at temperance rallies, but could not because she was a woman (Susan, House). If women could vote in elections, people would start taking them seriously in politics.
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.
Shirley had her way with words by speeches and speaking out her mind, she wasn 't shy to back off, she spoke for the people because she knew no one else would do it. In the speech Equality Rights For Women it says “... There is a calculated system of prejudice that lies unspoken behind that question. Why is it acceptable for women to be secretaries, librarians, and teachers, but totally unacceptable for them to be managers, administrators, doctors, lawyers, and Members of Congress... It has been observed before, that society for a long time discriminated against another minority, the blacks on the same basis - that they were different and inferior. The happy little homemaker and the contented "old darkey" on the plantation were both produced by prejudice…”-Shirley
The theme is courage because Susan B Anthony fights for women's voting rights. In the article she said “ May it please your Honor, I shall never pay a dollar of your unjust penalty. I shall earnestly and persistently continue to urge for women's rights.” This is important because she stood up to the judge, who is a person of authority.
One of the main things she incorporates throughout her speech is hyperbole. She uses this exaggeration in a way that makes sure every single person who leaves the convention after her speech will know exactly what her message was. The problem Stanton was discussing was very serious and many were brushing it off like it doesn 't matter. Woman suffrage was not being taken seriously by males. In her speech Stanton uses hyperbole to demand to be heard.
Without masculine direction or control, she is out of her element and a social anomaly -- sometimes a hideous monster.” The awakening of the lack of Women’s Rights was not only due to the obvious absence of their presence in any historically important political effort, but also by the courageous women of Texas who formed suffrage organizations. With little to no support from their fellow Americans, these women formed organizations that would invoke patriotism and the idea of equality. The results however lengthy and time consuming were dramatic.
The women 's suffrage movement arose in the eighteen hundreds, and was suffered for until it was nationally approved in Nineteen twenty. During the movement, people such as Susan B. Anthony were highly involved in acts such as petitioning. The movement also consisted people such as Alice Paul, who picketed outside the White House. According to the National Archives and Records, it started when Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucretia Mott lead the first woman’s rights convention at Seneca Falls, NY in eighteen forty eight.
Women fought for so long to achieve equality and perceive the right to vote throughout history. They have been denied their right to do so multiply times labeling them as minorities and property. In this era women played the role of a house-wife that only stayed at home to obey their husbands and to take care of their children. Therefore, women were portrayed as weak and submissive beings who had a second-class role in the society. However, the restriction for them to vote led to them standing out for the rights they deserved.
