Instead of sitting quietly in peaceful protests and campaigns, she refused to be a small voice in a sea of power-hungry men and oppressed women and made herself and women’s struggles known to America.
After reading the novel Revolutionary Mothers I have gained significant knowledge and a better grasp of the Revolutionary war. Carol Berkin 's purpose in writing this book was a simple one: Presenting a series of lenses of various raced women and how they affected and were effected by the Revolutionary War. She presents how women of every skin color was a major factor during the war and ultimately in aiding the formation of our nation. A major difference between this novel and what I have previously learned is that this novel magnifies contributions women have made for this country. Furthermore the textbooks that I read once in class greatly minimize those contributions and just give a broad overview of them.

Emmeline resigned from the Board of Guardians, but almost immediately appointed to the salaried office of Registrar of Births and Deaths in Manchester . Even after her years in the Board of Guardians, Emmeline was still in bewilderment as she was reminded how little respect there was for women and children. Pankhurst 's social awareness and involvement in the women 's movement stemmed from actively helping those in need, in which she joined the Labor party in 1900. Furthermore, by participating in the suffrage movements, Pankhurst hoped to enable policy changes through women 's
“I raise up my voice-not so I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard...we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” As stated by Malala Yousafza. Kate Chopin, an American feminist of the 20th century, takes a stand against feminism and uses her short story “The Story of an Hour” to call attention to the fact that women were oppressed in their marriages in the late 1800’s. Feminism refers to a broad range of ideas, approaches, and philosophies directed toward justifying equality for woman. It is a movement that seeks to achieve social rights for women in all key areas of life including marriages. Dating back to the late 1800’s woman would not dare to disobey their husband’s authority because of the patriarchal lifestyle that many women suffered from.
Kelly uses her time before the National American Women’s Suffrage Association to convince those in the audience that child labor is a women’s suffrage issue; that the mother’s, aunts, and sisters have a responsibility to help these children, which they cannot currently fulfil. She appeals directly to them by using little girls as examples in almost every paragraph, the repetition of “while we sleep,” and appeals directly to the hearts of a mother or parent. Kelly understands that this group’s main concern is the right to vote, and once they receive it, she wants to ensure that they will use that power to end child labor. Her speech was given fifteen years before women are finally granted the right to vote, yet it gives the members of the
