Some women responded in opposition; they believed that it was a time of suffrage and social change. Elizabeth Cady Stanton proclaimed that “NOW’s THE HOUR- Not the negro’s hour” alone, but everybody’s hour” as a response to Douglass’s assertion in the precedence of black suffrage. Her perspective as a white woman does not allow for empathy for the black race. Although she has championed for their cause, she cannot be as passionate nor can it be as relevant to her as Frederick Douglass. Stanton’s anger at the 15th amendment is understandable, considering the support she had for the abolition movement.
Stanton did this by listing ways that women were being oppressed, which showed that women weren’t being afforded equal rights even though the Declaration of Independence stated that men and women were equal. The major areas where she believed women were treated unequally were in education, employment and government. Since the 1800s there has been significant strides made towards achieving equality in these three categories, however, a blind eye can’t
Anthony starts out her speech by talking about the preamble which begins by saying, “We the people…” however this section of the text was never taken seriously. For instance, some people choose to believe that woman are paid less than a man because they are thought to be insubstantial. However, their interpretation is incorrect based off the logos appeal because the preamble says, “We the people”, and society should be thought of as a whole and should not be divided based on gender. In Anthony’s speech she says, “It is we the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we the male citizens; but we, the whole people, we formed the Union.” Anthony demonstrates how everyone is a person and the Constitution clearly states that everyone should be equally treated, and people
It listed the grievances, or issues, that women had with society, it was named the Declaration of Sentiments. People that were for women vote said that they do so much work and deal with so many bad things in work, so why can't they vote. (artifact 3) They used many different strategies to gain the right to vote like moral persuasion. The Women's Christian Temperance Movement fought for the ban on production and sale of alcohol. The 19th amendment was passed in 1920 the women had the right to vote.
In the text Shirley Chisholm is taking a stand for women’s rights rather than African American rights. Paragraph 4 it states, “ The unspoken assumption is that women are different.” What Chisholm means by this is that they are treated differently due to their gender. Chisholm believes that it is not always true that women are different. Paragraph 6 states, “But the truth is in the political world I have been far oftener discriminated against because I am a woman than because I am black.” Often people are more discriminated for being a woman rather than an African American. In this case, Chisholm for example, takes more defence being discriminated for being a woman than an African American.
The logic in Wilson’s quote as it relates to women’s suffrage is if democracy is the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government than why do women not allow to vote because they too submit to authority as men do. She used that logical reasoning to convince Congress and her audience. Throughout the speech, it is believed that Catt uses a thoughtful but defensive
For Heaven’s sake!” This quote suggests that the Wife of Bath believes all women are incapable of keeping a secret, which is an untrue and harmful stereotype. Her main opinion on women seems to be that while they wish to appear wise, pure, and good on the outside, it does not mean they are perfect internally and many

The women are treated as if their welfare is unimportant because women are thought of as a mere decoration to the society and are considered useless enough to not pay any attention to. Another evidence, according to Hosseini (2007), “ “...You are not able to think like we can. Western doctors and their science have proven this, This is why we require only one male witness but two female ones” ” (p.390). This proves how
The Declaration of Sentiments, a document written by activists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucrietia Mott, discusses injustices towards woman and the rights that have been withheld from them, such as voting and denied admittance into colleges. Stanton and Mott want readers, primarily men, to understand, to take action, and to fight against the opression that has been put on women of all ages, race and religion in the United States. Without the help of Stanton and Mott, womens rights may have been an overlooked issue yesterday and today, therefore, their message is incontestably crucial. To Stanton and Mott, women were created equal to men, and to further their declaration of this equality, they state that the rights that have been unfairly
In the article, “What Makes a Woman?”, American journalist, Elinor Burkett, addresses the topic of transgender females and natural females, along with their contrasting views. The article argues that transgender women can not transition and automatically generalize the entire female population. The purpose is to show that there is more to a woman than just her physical anatomy which is accomplished by Burkett. The rhetorical feature that influences the audience the most is pathos, such as when she talks about the struggles of changing from a young lady into a woman, and how a transgender can never truly understand this transformation. Another rhetorical feature that influences the audience is the use of ambiguity since the words “female”
With the help of the League of Women, labor movement law for women, women was able to get influenced in the public sphere. They challenged the Supreme Court, as a result women were able to get shorter hours in the workplace. According to Lipschultz, even if women had a suffrage movement and the passing of women’s right, government did not agree that women should still have an equal wage as men, even if they, the women had rights to vote. (Lipschultz, 142-153) The Suffragettes movement helped United States get attention from the media how women should be known. With the passing of the 19th Amendment, education, wages, and workplace changed for women.
What would be a world without women’s rights? Being degraded on all we women contribute to the world. A woman should not have to marry, why should she? A woman should be able to decide for herself. In the speech created by Crystal Eastman “Now We Can Begin,” Crystal clearly defines how a woman is supposed to be looked upon in society, not as a barbie doll figurine.
The author thinks women can hardly wear anything without a fear of being judged. She provides few pieces of evidence on how women usually are targeted and not men in this society in respect to interpretation. She argues on how different forms have Mr. as a suffix which shows nothing, but in the case of women there is Mrs. and also Miss which reflects the marital status of women. She raises her point also about how a woman changes her surname with the men after marriage. I personally believe that she had some evidence and her argument really made me think twice o and made me think why women are judged so much and she was also definitely true in her argument.
