Some of the more notable ones include Cleopatra, the last independent Pharoah and Joan of Arc, a girl who fought for the French during the Hundred Years War with England. The women’s rights movement finally began around the mid 1800s. This was also around the time black people were slaves. Eventually, after the civil war was over and slavery was made illegal, the Fourteenth Amendment was passed, which gave all men the right to vote. Many women were angered by this.
Women 's suffrage, the basic component of the right to allow women to vote. This all began in 1848 where at Seneca Falls, the first ever women’s convention was organized and established(Schneider 7). The status of these women dealt with middle class married white women who for the most part stayed inside their homes to work. However, men were not only the power and popularized out there, women were changing into a driving force following the progressive reforms(Schneider 2, 7). The efforts displayed by the women significantly influenced people 's daily lives of many Americans which has been planted in our history and looked back on today(Schneider 7).
"Over the past century, women in the United States and around the world have made great strides in the fight to gain economic, social and political equality. Since 1950, the percentage of women participating in the labor force has nearly doubled, from about 34 percent of women holding jobs outside the home. . ." Although men hated the fact that women wanted the right to vote and
Although it is true that substances such as alcohol can be abused, the prohibition of alcohol prevented the advancement of our society due to the corruption in public officials, negative effects on the economy, and increased crime rates. Prohibition was a major event in American history. It showed the weaknesses of morale in the United States, and how much people loved alcohol.
Although in modern times opposition to issues such as the wage gap is heavily supported by women, in the 1920s, women were pushing for much more basic rights. One such issue would be women’s suffrage, which was rallied for at events such as the Seneca Falls convention, the first women’s rights convention that was organized in 1848. Conventions and protests such as this one played large roles in the creation and enforcement of policies such as those outlined in the 19th amendment, which granted women with the right to vote after a timeless battle and opened up the future to the attainment of more rights for women. Along with suffrage, other smaller rights were given to women like the right to dress and act in ways that may not have been seen fit in earlier years. During the 1920s, many women decided to cut their hair short into bob cuts.
Many were just shacks but some were for the rich and well connected, during this time of alcohol restriction all classes in society participated in drinking alcohol, no class was excluded from drinking from the very poor to politicans and police. One of the main reasons for this use of alcohol during prohibtion was the loophole that only selling and distrubtion of alcohol were prohibited, because if the fact that the consumption wasn 't restricted people readily continued to drink alcohol, the only thing that really changed was who they got their supply of alcohol from, no longer did they get their supply from the local taverns but now they received thier alcohol from the local speakeasy. Another reason for the rampant wave of crime during prohibtion was the fact that the people responsible for enforcing it were horrendously understaffed, there were only about 1500 federal agents given the job of enforcing prohibition. These same 1500 agents were responsible for the enforcement of prohibtion on all the states, leaving about 30 for every state of the
Prohibition With alcohol prohibited with the Eighteenth amendment but instead that boosted the amount of crimes being committed although people did make them illegally Harlem Renaissance African American musicians, writers, and painters became a thing they had a huge impact during the roaring twenties. Jazz Age Newest type of music style which became Jazz , which different races became attracted to and it became a big thing in the 1920’s. New Roles for Women Women were starting to express themselves by showing their ankles they were called flappers, the style of clothes they wore were becoming modern .Some even cut their hair a little short they had careers and that was the end of Women suffrage.

“ A crusade in political education by women and for women, and for most of its existence, a crusade in search of a consistency” this quote by historian Nancy Woloch describes early suffragists efforts to take one step further to equality among men and women (Office of the Historian, 2007). The women 's suffrage movement changed the political, social and economic stance of women in The United States during the early twentieth century. Today women are one step closer to full equality of the sexes because of the women who fought for suffrage. Before this became the huge movement it was still legal for some women to vote in a few states. In Massachusetts and New York emphasis placed on owning property was the determining factor in voting rights.
Taking a Stand for Women in Tennessee Insert historical context here!!!! The United States, despite being a culturally forward nation now, was the twenty-seventh county to give women the right to vote. Women’s suffrage was an important step forward for the Equal Rights movement in both Tennessee and America because there was an incredible amount of opposition overcome, men and women from all over the United States fought for it, and the amendment was passed because of Tennessee. Many women were angered about not having the same rights that men had, way before suffrage was granted. The first public protest of gender inequality was in 1848 (Yellin and Sherman, 17), and by 1870, women in Tennessee began to show an interest in the right to vote
In 1848 Black women made their first bid for equality in meetings with black men. “At one meeting of the National Convention of Colored Freedmen in Cleveland, Ohio a black woman proposed that women delegates be allowed to speak and vote as equals, eventually, they reclassified eligible voters as “persons” instead of men and women were allowed to participate equally”. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Stanton changed the 15th Amendment by supporting that it should voting rights to former slaves, and that it should also include women. The northern part of the country often gave more rights to black women, the southern part of the country was sadly more close minded and still saw women as incapable and not as good as men. During the Civil War white and free black women in the North established soldiers’ aid societies.
