This document written by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, demanded social status equality as well as legal rights, and the right to vote. The successes of the Women’s Suffrage Movement was that the 19th amendment granted women the right to vote. During this movement job opportunities were open to more women which also caused this movement to make working conditions better to work in and gave women a better paying wage. Women were also able to take birth control which worked on issues such as childbirth during the period.
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.
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.
Considering all of this, it can be seen that the creation of W.S.P.U. and the emergence of the suffragette movement promoted the idea rebel women, in a society which had fix ideals about women and their role within society. The struggle for women’s suffrage was not easy to pull off and the achievement of the vote took several years. The very first achievement in terms of the vote for women came in at 1918 when women over the age of 30 were allowed to vote, but the fully to vote women came in the year 1928 in the United
As stated earlier, Obama shares his personal experiences of growing up with his grandmother and a single mother and witnessing the roles of women flourish since then. By comparing and contrasting the roles of women from earlier times to the current roles of women in society, the audience is able to grasp the progress that women have made over time, as well as the way women are viewed and treated. “In my lifetime we’ve gone from a job market that basically confined women to a handful of often poorly paid positions to a moment when women not only make up roughly half of the workforce but are leading in every sector, from sports to space, from Hollywood to the Supreme Court”. As he describes, women used to only be exposed to a few jobs that provided little financial benefits for them, compared to today, where women are successful in pursuing careers high up in the business industry, government, professional sports
Thousands of women have screamed at the top of their lungs, clawed at the patriarchy, and tirelessly fought for their rights as citizens of the United States of America. From the beginning of mankind, women have been labeled as inferior to men not only physically, but mentally and intellectually as well. Only in 1920 did women gain the right to voice their opinions in government elections while wealthy white men received the expected right since the creation of the United States. A pioneer in women’s suffrage, Susan B. Anthony publicly spoke out against this hypocrisy in a time when women were only seen as child bearers and household keepers. Using the United State’s very own Constitution and Declaration as ammunition, Anthony wrote countless
Women in Latin America were suppressed, and they had enough of it. They sought greater personal freedom, opportunities, and equal rights between both sexes. In this essay, I argue that women in Latin America did not have any rights, which made them sympathetic and want to follow women suffrage ideas from the United States and Europe that was already happening. The Suffragette movement
Thousands of women have screamed at the top of their lungs, clawed at the patriarchy, and tirelessly fought for their rights as citizens of the United States of America. From the beginning of mankind, women have been labeled as inferior to men not only physically, but mentally and intellectually as well. Only in 1920 did women gain the right to voice their opinions in government elections with a vote, while wealthy white men received the expected right since the creation of the United States. A pioneer in women’s suffrage, Susan B. Anthony publicly spoke out against this hypocrisy in a time when women were only seen as child bearers and household keepers. 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.
I believe that despite all controversial views this event was a huge shift for social change and future breakthrough in this area. For the American feminist movement such impetus was the successful story of the suffrage movement during the First World War, including the adoption of the 19th Amendment. The history of women’s struggle for their rights is very long and sometimes seems endless. “The Age of Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution in the 18th and 19th centuries opened up job opportunities for women, released them from domestic confines and provided them with new social freedoms” (Repetto, 2010,
This is sadly a very far cry from the truth but then anything in Pakistan which does not suit the popular and corrupt mindset is usually deemed an agenda of some foreign white hall of power which forever hangs over us in our imaginations. This new modern liberating mindset as it is painted has been around ever since the days of Fatima Jinnah who fought for women’s rights throughout her life. Rana liaqut Ali Khan who founded the “United front for women’s rights” was another pioneer in activism in those days. In fact the early days of the feminism were met with great success as women not only achieved the right to vote but made it part of the constitution to have representation reserved for them in the parliament from 1956 to 1973. After this came Bhutto era, and this really opened up all government services to women including the district management group and the foreign service (in the civil service), which had been denied to them earlier.
Women went through a lot before they were granted the right to vote in Britain. They were brave and persistent. Some of the cause women got the vote include; Role of women in Victorian Britain, the organisation that helped- Suffragists and Suffragettes and one of the big events which bought the two sexes together- The First World War. After causing commotions and displaying militant acts they were given the right to vote and there was consequence after that like; Political consequences, such as women’s role in the parliament and the job industry , Economic Consequences, such as new job opportunities, pay and personal freedom of finacial use and Social Consequences, such as marital equality and child custody.
Being a young woman in America, I consider one of the greatest moments in time to be the years from early 1800s to 1920. This was a period in time where women fought not to just be in this world but to play a major part in its existence. However, to do this, they needed such things as the right to vote, own property, serve a jury, and even speak in public. This moment in time is recorded in our history books as the Women’s Suffrage Movement in America. This paper will take a look into some of the hurdles they had to leap at and important people who made major milestones along the way.
If we want to get something great it will take a lot of effort. This is exactly what women did to help get their goal on August 18, 1920. Although many thought they would not win their battle, they did. They made it possible for all women to have the ability to vote. What they accomplished, showed that through willpower and courage, anything can be achieved.
Several people equate being politically active to voting, however, even though women were denied the right to vote, historians and scholars recognize that women still played an active political role throughout the “Revolutionary Period”. The passing of the Townshend Act played part in growing women’s political self-awareness. One way that women were politically active was by boycotting British goods. They homespun their cloth rather than using imported cloth. They also substituted herbal teas and coffee after the British placed new regulations on imported non- British tea.
Reflection #3 word count: All through history, our society has had problems with accepting the idea that women deserve the same right that men have. For example, during the 1800’s men believe that women were not strong enough to be someone in the real world; to now with men believing that a women is not capable of being someone powerful in the real world. It has taken almost 2,000 years to let women be treated as an actually human and not a poverty or an object. , to start seeing girl power and what they are able to become.
