The Women's movement from the beginning unified women to closely inspect several issues that were and are basic rights for all of the citizens; some examples would be: the right to vote, to own property without a husband, access to a higher education, and the reproductive rights of their bodies. Women's right to vote (suffrage) was one of the most controversial rights issue of the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century and divided early feminists on ideological lines. Right’s for women have come a long way since then, many have been won and some we still fight for to this day. The Women’s Movement better known as the feminist movement is made up of three waves. The first wave is known as the Suffrage Movement,
This Amendment’s goal was to make sure that every person would have rights and equal opportunities. Alice Paul’s She dedicated her time to think of others and their rights. Paul’s actions had a long lasting effect on history, and because of her, all American women now have a voice in politics. Without Alice Paul’s advocation towards the nineteenth amendment, the United States would not allow women to vote, and the nation would not have a woman candidate running for president.
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.

As the reform of law had to be agreed by the government, this idea behind the militancy and attacks on both private as well as public properties were highlighted as Emmeline exclaimed, “There is something that governments care far more for than human life, and that is the security of property, and so it is through property that we shall strike the enemy.” While participating in such activities was effective since it drew attention to the cause, doing so required a substantial commitment from the woman who broke social mores and drew attention also to herself. Every militant act of the W. S. P. U. required bravery from each member and Pankhurst encouraged them through resisting the government, even to the point of being sentenced to time in prison. Her campaign was further strengthen by her exclamation that women had suffered for their families, but never for themselves, and thus, women also have the rights to express themselves by exercising political rights. The numerous strikes, and public disruptions has caused many imprisonments of the WSPU members, including Pankhurst and her daughter, but nothing stopped them from fighting for their political rights.
In the 19th century women were not given the rights that they deserve. they were never given the chance to prove themselves. Men did not value women as much as we do today. women were only valued as nurses, cashiers, store clerks and cleaners. They were unvaluable.
Lasting Effects of the Women's Suffrage Movement A century ago, the United States was a very different place, especially for women. They did not have the same rights as men. For example, they were excluded from inheriting property on the same terms as men, serving on a jury, opening a bank account, applying for a loan, attending Ivy League colleges, and also had a limited voice in their government because they were not allowed to vote. Ironically, the constitution did not explicitly deny women the right to vote, but since they were not allowed to do so many other things, it made sense that voting was restricted as well.
Voting in an election is more than just voting in an election. Voting is a symbol of freedom, equal rights, opportunity for all, however, women can 't partake in this opportunity. Voting will give

Six well-bred women stood before a judge in the Washington D.C. police court on June 27, 1917. Not thieves, not drunks, not prostitutes, like the usual attendants there. They included a university student, an author of nursing books, a prominent campaign organizer, and 2 former school teachers. All were educated accomplished and unacquainted with criminal activity, but on that day they stood in a court of law with their alleged offense, “Obstructing traffic”. What they had actually done was stand quietly in front of the White House holding banners, urging president Woodrow Wilson to add one sentence to the constitution: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any account of sex”.
Women used many different methods to win the votes for a constitutional amendment concerning women’s suffrage. One method they used used was propaganda.
