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. In 1863 both Susan Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton established the Women's Loyal National League to demand some constitution amendments in the United States. It was the first American Women’s organization for anti-slavery movement as it was the only political tool for women at that time.
Finding out that she never married John Smith was eye opening for me. The book tells us that “Pocahontas was only about ten years old” when she first came in contact with John Smith (52). Who would ever think that just a young ten year old girl, even as brave as she might have been, would stand up for a man she barely knew, to her father, who was a large portion of her world. From what I read in Townsend’s book, I have come to the conclusion that her main argument was to get the just truth out there and get rid of the lies. I think she did just
The women’s suffrage movement paved the way for equal voting rights for all women throughout the twentieth century. Many strong and inspiring women fought for the rights that we now have today. One of them, including Alice Paul. Paul played a major role in pressuring Congress to pass the 19th amendment. 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.
Who were the founders and what methods did they use? What were their successes and/or failures? Women’s Suffrage Movement gave women the right to vote in elections during the late 19th century. Women organizations nationally and even globally formed efforts to gain voting and equal civil rights for women. Women's Suffrage Movement has taught many students about the importance of gender equality and how women deserve the same rights and benefits that a man is given.
Unfortunately, at ten before nine of her wedding day her future husband did not show up to the marriage, this ruined the rest of her life. “ Do you know what I feel here? Yes ma’am your heart. ‘ ‘ Broken!” (60) As this text states Miss Havisham has not recovered from her feelings even though many years have passed since the wedding day. Nobody expects that a wealthy lady could not have love never in her life.
When we go back to 19th century that was the time when it was witnessed that the male suffrage was prevailing in a number of countries and women suffrage was not there and somehow it ignited a spark among women to fight for themselves and for their rights so that they could be treated as humans and not as animals. In the year 1893, women were able to achieve equal voting rights at national level in New Zealand. The same pattern was followed in Australia in 1902. However, in America, England and Canada women could achieve same voting rights only after the First World War ended. Then came into being the famous movement called The Suffrage Movement during which the women fought for their equal voting rights which all men were enjoying at that time because they were of the view that they were a part of the society too and they deserve all the rights to elect their representatives.
The Roaring Twenties was a prime era for women. Because of the toils of many strong women, ideals were flipped on their head, to America’s benefit. In the late 1800’s, two women, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, quickly realized that women would not be able to share their political views unless given the right to vote. Because of the fact that women had basically no other societal roles besides housework, they were not respected during this time period. So the two women teamed up and spent the rest of their lives fighting for the women’s suffrage movement.
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.
On November 5, 1872 Susan B. Anthony had voted and was imprisoned for it two weeks later. Did she have the right to vote, or was she wrong? She was wrong to a lot of people but not the women and to the court reasoning she was imprisoned for it. Although she was wrong to vote and breaking the law I believed that her motives were for the greater good of humanity. Susan B. Anthony, born February 5, 1820 raised in a Quakers household.
All these women came from different social, economic and socio-political background. Harriet Taylor Mill was given the opportunity to lay the foundation for feminism, while hiding under her husband’s wing, she was a relatively middle to high class individual who focused on issues that women like her faced. She believed that equality was simply based on equal opportunity for both sexes simply based on skill not gender, as both could do things equally well. Gloria Feltd argued and fought for women’s reproductive rights, as she was a teenage mother herself. She just as Taylor Mill had a middle to high class background, she believed among other things that equality would come with reproductive rights for all.
Many women fought for this bill including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mot, and Susan B. Anthony who began the first women 's rights movement in Seneca Falls, New York. There were various setbacks but after the Civil War ended they began to fight for their rights with new momentum. President Woodrow Wilson changed his mind after being sworn into office, and turned in favor of women 's right to vote and addressed the Senate in favor of suffrage. On May 21, 1919, republican James R Mann, a U.S. representative from Illinois who served as chairman of the Suffrage Committee, proposed the House resolution to approve the Susan Anthony Amendment. The bill passed with above the required two-thirds majority.
No longer associated with the American Equal Rights Association, Anthony and Stanton used the Revolution as a launching pad for their newly founded National Woman Suffrage Association in 1869. Though, it is worthy to note that, Anthony and Stanton lost many members of the National Woman’s Suffrage Association due to their involvement with Train. The National Woman’s Suffrage Association was a New York-based group that worked towards securing a Constitutional Amendment that would give women the right to vote. The first National Woman Suffrage Association president was Stanton and she remained in that position for twenty-one years. The National Woman’s Suffrage Association attracted women that were younger and from western frontier, instead
