It changed the way many people saw the roles of women in the United States. Everyone put aside their differences and united for the same cause. During the Civil War, the Woman’s Suffrage Movement came to a halt because they joined efforts to help in the war as nurses or occupied men’s positions back at home. At the end of the war women gained more support when they resumed the movement because many people saw the need and importance of women (World Book 318). As the war came to an end men witnessed the great contribution that women had during the war and because of this some men even changed their minds and supported the Woman Suffrage Movement.
Anne Frank was a 16 year old girl who was killed during the time of the Natzis after being betraied. From her over packed diary, Anne changed how people looked at the world. When she was hiding in the annex during the war, her diary was her most prized possession and with that diary, she wrote everything from things she did, to what she wished she did instead of hiding in the annex for the years. She was in the annex with 8 people including her and was packed, one bit of noise would give them away. After the war was over, Anne’s diary was published and written in 67 different languages and over 30 million copies were sold.
During this time period a select few women would disguise themselves as men to help in the cause. One of these women was Debora Samson Gannett, who enlisted under her brother’s name in 1782. She served for 17 months until she was discovered (“A History of Women in the U.S. Military”). Other women throughout history have done similar acts to be able to serve their country on the front lines. In 1917, during World War I, women were officially allowed to join the military and around 33,000 women enlisted, though they were only allowed as nurses and staff.
For nearly one hundred and fifty years, The United States of America claimed to be made “By the people, for the People” but denied the most basic rights to half of the population. Women were seen by American society as second-class citizens, existing exclusively to assist others and be subservient to men. Many women during this time did not agree on this topic and choose to fight back against the patriarchy. Women like this just wanted to have the same respect as any other man in society. The women who fought back were largely associated with the National Women Suffrage Association.
Women were live in suffrage and they had no position in the society. As Karen Morley said, “ I spoke out on women’s rights, like equal pay for equal work.” ("Karen Morley Quote.") Women started publishing books about women rights, hoped to change the rule, gain right, from government and become equal to men. During 1832 William Lloyd Garrison, the American abolitionist, created an organization that focused on abolition and encouraged women attending Anti-Slavery Society.

During the “New Girl” Era, women in Germany suffered discrimination because of the fact that they were not men. They lived in an era that was almost entirely run by men. Women were given less job opportunities and were finally given women’s rights, but were not able to fully use them because they were still restricted from doing many things. This lead to Hannah’s creations of her photomontages that were inspired by her social and political views on this era. Hannah created “The Beautiful Girl” around 1919
Men in Sparta were at war with Athens because Athenians started to think they were more powerful than the other city states, but in reality the only thing protecting Athens was a wall the women got more freedoms because of the men going to war with Athens. Women had many different rights they were allowed to do almost anything except they could not vote.

Lasting Effects of the Women's Suffrage Movement A century ago, the United States was a very different place, especially for women. They did not have the same rights as men. For example, they were excluded from inheriting property on the same terms as men, serving on a jury, opening a bank account, applying for a loan, attending Ivy League colleges, and also had a limited voice in their government because they were not allowed to vote. Ironically, the constitution did not explicitly deny women the right to vote, but since they were not allowed to do so many other things, it made sense that voting was restricted as well. Women’s decade-long struggle to earn the right to vote, otherwise known as the Women's Suffrage movement, came to an end with
