Mother Jones was a fearless Irish American activist, who aided with the coordination in strikes and cofounded the industrial workers of the world; a labour union combining general and industrial unionism. She was ruthless and her reputation and actions made her feared by many.

Children from as young as the age of 6 began working in factories, the beginning of their exploitation, to meet demands of items and financial need for families. In Florence Kelley’s speech before the National American Woman Suffrage Association in Philadelphia 1905, Kelley addresses the overwhelming problem of child labor in the United States.

According to Mother Jones, child labor was something so miserable and heart tearing. Mother Jones states, “Tiny babies of six years old with faces of sixty did an eight-hour shift for ten cents a day”. She witnessed all these poor children work every day and go home exhausted and drained. They had to work in horrible conditions, managers had no sympathy for the poor little children some would get hurt and others would die from illnesses. Jones states, “Often their hands were crushed. A finger was snapped off. They die of pneumonia, these little ones, - bronchitis and consumption.” These poor little kids were stripped from their childhood instead of playing they worked to help their family. According to Mother Jones the people responsible for
Child Labor was one of Florence Kelley’s main topics at a speech she gave in Philadelphia during a convention of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Kelley talks about all the horrors children were going through and the injustices they were suffering. She talks of the conditions children working in, the hours they were going in, and all in all, how wrong child labor was. Her purpose for this was to gain support of people to petition for the end of child labor.

Rosa Parks’s influence on the fight for equality was arguably the most impactful of all the leaders in the Civil Rights Movement. Rosa Parks first embarked on her Civil Rights journey by becoming involved with the NAACP. The author of the History website page on Rosa Parks claims, “in December 1943 Rosa also joined the Montgomery chapter of the NAACP, and she became chapter secretary” (Rosa Parks). Rosa started out as a follower, but became dedicated to the organization so she ran for a board position. About ten years later, the famous Rosa Parks story took place in Montgomery. The author of the Rosa Parks page emphasizes that, “By refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Alabama, city bus in 1955, black seamstress Rosa Parks (1913—2005) helped initiate the civil rights movement in the United States” (Rosa Parks). Simply put, Rosa inspired the rest of the African American communities around the United States to protest through boycotts whenever they had the chance to do so. Determined to get the bus segregation law overturned, Parks and her fellow NAACP
[Hook] Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment”. The Truman Show is related to the transcendental movement because there is a quest for self discovery, there are examples of letting others think for you and an example of social reform.

Mary Jones’ strikes were very effective because she had children from the mills and a marching band (Tonn 314). She got lots of attention from people with her speeches and protests (Ford 265). In the Encyclopedia of Women and American Politics, Ford says, “In 1903, she organized a march of more than 100 child mill workers to President Theodore Roosevelt’s residence in New York.” Also, she worked undercover in some mills to uncover abusive child labor (Ford 265). Mary Harris Jones put her life at risk to help these children in the mills.

Passage 1 effectively develops the contribution Elizabeth Cady Stanton made to the women’s rights movement during the 1800s. Passage 2 is more of facts about her and Susan rather than how they contributed. They both tell a lot about how Elizabeth helped women’s rights. Also in passage 2 it talks about about Elizabeth had help from Susan B Anthony. So passage 1 defiantly was better at showing how Elizabeth contributed to women’s rights.
