Using the United State’s very own Constitution and Declaration as ammunition, Anthony wrote countless speeches and called for the right to vote in a country that boasted equality and freedom for all, yet women were not included. Her outspokenness began an unstoppable and persistent women’s suffrage movement that inspired hundreds of rebellious women to keep fighting, even after Anthony’s death in 1906, which was fourteen years before the vote was gained.

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. The purpose of the speech was to pressure Congress into passing a legislation that would give women the right to vote in the United States of America.
August of 1920, the year that became a remarkable change for women, allowing them to vote. Before that, women weren’t allowed to vote and women such as Susan B. Anthony fought for that right. In her letter “On Women’s Right to Vote”, she furthers her purpose by telling all the citizens of the United States that women are people too and are entitled the right to vote just as their male companions. Throughout the speech, Anthony uses pathos, ethos, logos and other rhetorical devices to push her point across. In her letter, her second paragraph she states the US Constitution., giving her major credibility.
Until the Civil war, she never stopped working for the American Anti-Slavery Society. But then she was more focused on pursuing women's rights. She started claiming the rights of both sexes and she established with her friend Stanton the American Equal Rights Association.

Women became part of everyone 's lives since the beginning. It was written in the book of Genesis that a woman was reated after man which gives the idea to the people that women are inferior than men. According to Gloria Steinem (n.d.), "The story of women 's struggles for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights." Women have been in the batle for equality, for years. Until they succeeded and International Women 's Day was observed since March 8 in the early of 1900 's (par.
In the mid nineteenth century, the women 's rights movement unified women on a number of issues that were considered fundamental rights. Women 's suffrage was one of the most controversial rights issue. The whole focus I will be talking about is “Which had a greater impact on women’s rights during WW2, the workplace or the military?” I will be covering two topics. What a woman 's role was in the workplace and how they were involved in the armed forces. Some may say that the world war 2 had not contributed to women 's rights, and others say it made a huge impact.
This speech was given on November 13th, 1913 by Emmeline Pankhurst, who has been called the mother of British suffragette movement, in Hartford, Connecticut.

The negative feedback made many women negligent to describe themselves as feminists(“Feminism in
Michelle Obama gave a speech regarding the allegations made against Donald Trump and his treatment toward women. She was speaking for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire when she gave an emotionally overflowing speech to a crowd of Clinton supporters, who were mainly women. While she charms the crowd on an emotional level, Michelle Obama makes a connection to the hearts and minds of her listeners in order to demonstrate the connection between the women and herself. Her speech was highly admired as a result of her use of pathos, diction, and the way she made everyone feel easily relatable to her. Michelle Obama does not fail to jump right into the hot topic that she wants to discuss, Donald Trump’s scandal.
ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN THROUGH GOVERNMENTAL SCHEMES -An overview of Indian Scenario ABSTRACT The empowerment of women is one of the central issues in the process of development of countries all over the world. The International Women’s Day celebrated on 8th march every year has become a day of demonstration for equal opportunity and solidarity. But the question arises how relevant is celebration of Women’s Day in view of the fact that their position in the society has not changed much. They are still treated as the ‘weaker sex’ who needs to be protected entire life-be it by her father, husband or son. The ‘New Age Women’ and the ‘Women of Substance’ in true terms are just words in books.
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. This failure did not stop Minnie nor her supporters in fact it inspired them more.
In the women 's suffrage movement the women used many different tactics to get their cause across to government. On tactic that they used was they organized a parade. The girls were smart in the timing of the parade. They that President Woodrow Wilson was getting inaugurated and that their would be a large crowd already in the area. With a large crowd it would be easier for the women to spread the word about how they should be able to vote.
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” The women created the American Equal Rights Association in 1866 and also published The Revolution in Rochester, which was a newspaper.
Introduction: Oh, the places you’ll go… For centuries, half of the human population has battled for basic human rights and equality. Unfortunately, it was only not long ago when women had a major success, the passing of the 19th amendment, allowing them the right to vote. This newly granted liberty opened the door to many different opportunities for women, including the ability to access safe and legal abortions, to access contraception, to own property, to request a divorce, to a gain in pay equal to that of a man in the same position, and much more. With the continued successes of the movement, there was little to no question as to the possibility of these granted rights being repealed by the government in the future. After all, why would
The march strongly renews the suffrage movement as a certified and dangerous constitutional enforcement. Years later, the 19 amendment was passed by margin of one vote. Women were giving the right to vote in 1896.
