Popular sovereignty is the idea that "governments derive their authority from the consent and support of people, not from God" (Alpha). Until the modern era, most kings and governments claimed their authority from God, a concept called divine right of kings. The concept was based in part of a "social contract" between individuals and their government, a concept created by writers like John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. A corollary of popular sovereignty is that if a government fails or mistreats its people, the people have the right to replace it (The Social Contract). Because the Third Estate formed the vast majority of the French nation, it was entitled to representation in the national government.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s novel, Herland, is regarded by many as the pioneering feminist utopian novel. Authored in 1915, Herland is intended as a social critique. A sociological theorist, Gilman sees herself as a change agent for a better social life for women especially, as well as society in general. Like other intellectuals at the turn of the 20th century, Gilman struggled to theorise her social vision. By self-consciously distancing herself from the intellectuals of her time, she crafted her works as endeavours at transforming society.

Women at that time were entailing situated notions such as “ being anti-men “ and “ gender equality “ have been taken on board by aid agencies and organizations
Its opponents have even suggested that feminist rhetoric condemns the opposite sex to the extent of gender antagonism (Young). In light of both the altruistic progressivism and the criticized status surrounding the contemporary women’s movement, the progress made through centuries of perseverance overall suggests that the movement intends to better and help the status of women in society. Now a movement based around securing the franchise of women, contemporary feminism initially spawned to uphold the rights of women before they were legally acknowledged. The spirit of the movement established itself at this initial point, a “gathering devoted to women’s rights” (“The Women 's Rights Movement, 1848-1920”). As such, in commitment to its original form, the contemporary movement reflects
She wanted to make sure that all women would then have a voice, and not just be snared upon simply because looked at her as nothing more than a woman.

An example of a group of progressive women who wanted to start prohibition is The Women’s Christian Temperance Union. This group was lead by Francis Willard. The goals of the Women’s Christian Temperance union were to lobby for federal aid for education, free school lunches, unions for workers, an eight-hour workday, work relief for the poor, municipal sanitation and boards of health, national transportation, strong anti-rape laws, protections against child abuse and of course prohibition. The root of Willard 's argument for female suffrage was based on the platform of "Home Protection", which Willard described as "the movement... the object of which is to secure for all women above the age of twenty-one years the ballot as one means for the protection of their homes from the devastation caused by the legalized traffic in strong drink."[1
Minnie had finally achieved what she had spent so much time fighting for but this accomplishment was great and it was a milestone for women in the state of teas but it wasn’t enough for Minnie she set her sights out for something bigger and better which was an amendment that would grant women throughout America the right to vote. In order to achieve this Minnie made arrangements with United States Senator from Texas Morris Sheppard in 1917 for a conference in his Washington, D.C. office for women to state their perspectives on the proposed suffrage amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Minnie and NAWSA lobbyist Maud Wood Park, who would become the first president of the League of Women Voters, initiated a campaign for constituents to flood the offices of their representatives with telegrams in favor of passage. The United States House of Representatives passed the first version of the Nineteenth Amendment on January 10, 1918, but it failed in the United States Senate.
Anthony knew that women should have been given this right long ago, which prompted her and the others to begin a woman suffrage movement. Anthony and her good friend Stanton founded the American Equal Rights Association in 1866. However, the movement split and rejoined in 1887, creating the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Anthony went to Congress and pleaded with them to change their mind on whether women were worthy enough to vote. Not only did she advocate for the right to vote, but the property rights of women as well.
Anthony was introduced to Elizabeth Cady Stanton and started to work together during the Women’s Suffrage Movement. Susan B. Anthony learned everything that Stanton could teach her about being an activist and abolitionist. Anthony attended her first convention in 1852 at Syracuse. “Anthony and Stanton believed the Republicans would reward women for their work in building support for the Thirteenth Amendment by giving them the vote. They were bitterly disappointed when this did not happen”
