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. Women in the 1900’s worked with abolitionist to get their rights they deserved. Susan B. Anthony, a major women’s rights activist, contributed a role in this movement as well as Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Susan and Elizabeth both teamed up and created the National American Woman Suffrage Association.
Once the reform movement began, however, abolitionist women realized their rights could be compared to those of slaves, and a few bold women decided to do something about the inequality of men and women (Finkelman 405). What these ladies decided to do, of course, was start the women’s rights movement. A few of these brave women who spoke out were Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony. Stanton formed a friendship with Anthony and their two distinct personalities did so much to further the women’s rights movement (Schmittroth and McCall 246). Their differing personalities allowed them to work efficiently, for example, “Anthony would tend to
They would like male and female help to win this battle against what they believe is unfair or unequal. They also want men and women to be treated the same weather that be with pay or anything else. Some of the women and men of America think that it is about time that women and men truly get treated equally. During the Civil Rights Movement the African-Americans fought for rights that should have been given to them at birth including equality. In the beginning it was a very peaceful protest with Martin Luther King Jr. as their leader.
Michael Jenkins The Harlem Renaissance was a wonderful time that promoted African Americans rights and position in society. This was a time where not only the colored community was raised on a prolific platform but the whole country was raised on hypothetical platform. It is important to us as American because we hold the belief in equality for everyone. We also believe in everyone getting their chance to do something in their lives which was not possible with prejudice and racism.
Martin Luther King Jr. realized this, and preached a change that the African Americans have would force only through nonviolence. Martin Luther King’s philosophy made more sense for America in the 1960s because it pushed America forward, it stopped bloodshed through nonviolence, and it helped make everyone more equal and together by showing them the errors of their ways. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X seemed to have a respect among one another, though their philosophies were quite different from each other. Malcolm X made it clear that he believed that the African Americans and the White people should remain separate but should be considered equal to each other. He told white people “work in conjunction with us-each of us working among our own kind.” Martin Luther King Jr., on the other hand, preached equality and desegregation.
The 1960s was one of the most controversial decades in American history. The 1960s was a decade of new democratic ideals. People from all races fought against discrimination and segregation. John F. Kennedy and MLK Jr. were assassinated and the culture in the 1960s reflected the social changes that were happening at the time. Although the African-American Civil Rights Movement started in the mid-1950s, it escalated in the 1960s.
With the rapid development of America’s economy and the rise of liberalism, a series of movement took place in American society in the 1960s, including civil rights movements among American Negroes, feminist movements among American women, and anti-war movements among young people. In order to prevent the prevalence of communism, America intervened in the Vietnam War, which caused dissatisfaction of common people. Being discriminated by the society, American Negroes and women began to fight for equal rights. Although the goals of the movements are various, they are intended to build a more equal, free, and peaceful America. These movements make a great contribution to changing Negroes’ and women’s status in politics, economy, culture as well
As it’s regarded nowadays as the earliest mass protest, fighting for civil rights in the US, and due to this it can be seen that King then arose as a prominent national leader of the American civil rights movement as he communicated his dedication to nonviolent resistance(Montgomery Bus Boycott,2010) with the American peoples. This was one of the many victories that defined the American Civil rights movement, however as time passed realizing that they could implement change, they then fought for the segregation laws to be changed, as they began to see the bigger picture, realizing that they could implement so much more
Many of, or dare I say, most of, the rights and freedoms that we as American citizens get to enjoy and take advantage of today, are the result of the committed efforts of social reform groups and movements of days past. Examples of such movements and groups include, the abolitionist movement, the women’s suffrage movement, and the civil rights movement, to name a few. However, groups are not implicitly noble. Groups can serve to be equally detrimental to achieving a just and fair society. For every social change group in the United States, there are other groups and organizations that focus their efforts on trying to block such efforts.
I feel as if I have a responsibility as a young women to continue to fight for the equal rights of people, unbiased of race, gender, and sexual orientation, all over the world. This revolution influenced my life because I had a strong exposure to it. Feminism shows up on social media feed, ads on television, and in the movies I watch. With all of the media out there on the subject, it would have found its way to my brain in some form at some point in my lifetime. Feminism is not only a fight for the equal rights of women to men, but of every person as equal individuals.
This horrible incident inspired Ida to begin her anti-lynching crusade. A national holiday should be dedicated to Ida B. Wells, who has had a positive impacted on this country because of her civic and political participation for women’s and civic rights. Ida has had a big impact on today’s society because her actions has helped changed the way African Americans are treated and allowed women to have the right to vote. As a woman, I’m allowed to vote and am treated with respect due to Ida’s civic and political participation.
Because Civil Rights Movements played a vital role in empowering the African Americans, Motown Records advocated for such actions and became equally as involved in hopes of strengthening the impacts of Civil Rights. Motown Records were highly accepting towards any aspiring individual who felt as if he/she desired to speak their mind and introduce a new perspective. However, there are numerous advantages and disadvantages to
It opened up a whole new opportunity for women and girls in general, it led girls be able to graduate to actually get a scholarship and be able to play. The Civil Rights Movement showed that despite the color of someone 's skin African Americans can still do anything a white man could do. A example of that is Jesse Owens while he was in Berlin he served as a representation of freedom, democracy, and equality. He didn’t give up even when the Americans triumphed over discrimination. But because of his stand, Americans citizens supported him even from across the
Congress then expanded the act and brought equality to African Americans by passing the Voting Rights Acts of 1965 for them. And as history progressed the nursing field did too, giving more than one race and gender an opportunity to enter this profession. Mrs. Ludie Andrews was an advocate for equality and because of her perseverance she had made it possible for African Americans to achieve the same level of rights to be licensed in the state of Georgia. Many African American women have made history and opened doors of hope for future African American nursing
