Fuller was aware of her capabilities, and wanted all women to comprehend the amount of potential they all have. According to the article, Biography Online, “With growing confidence as a writer, Fuller also returned to themes of female emancipation and the role of women in society.

If it weren 't for her, maybe people wouldn 't see women as the strong and independent individuals we are capable of being.
The progressive era which lasted from 1890-1920 in American society was the institution of radical reforms brought about by the millions of Americans involved in volunteer organizations across the country. During this time Americans worked to create solutions to the problems caused by the rapid industrialization and urbanization of the country. The progressive era was not a single movement, but rather a collection of movements all of which were intended to improve the lives of Americans. This was a truly remarkable time for women and the end of the era would see almost universal women’s suffrage with the passing of the nineteenth amendment in 1920. The success of the progressive era can be contributed, at least in part, to the large participation of women in these volunteer organizations across the country.

Women in Europe were the first to have suffrage which was later followed by some other countries around the world.
A knowledgeable woman has the skills, information, talent, and self-confidence that she requires to be a superior mother, employee, and resident. Men and women are like two sides of the coin and need identical opportunity to contribute to the country’s development. One cannot survive without the other. Women must be able to receive the same opportunities as men in education because it is with this education that leaders are sculpted and set out to be examples of the future. Leaders cause change in this world and by me being a leader within my community to help other girls have the opportunities of education and good health I am already making a difference.
