Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s contribution to this cause was monumental to the start of this movement. They, along with plenty of other women and rights activists, fought for equality for women in society. Not having the right to vote made women feel as if their opinions and political views were trivial and not equal to those of men. However, men felt as if women were too emotional, less educated, and were unable to evaluate political issues that did not pertain to a group consisting of mostly stay at home mothers. Obviously, as history has now demonstrated, exactly the opposite is true.
Around the world women is considered as the creator of mankind, yet she is not given a proper place by her male counter part. Her status is suppressed and she was treated inferior in the male chauvinistic society. So they fight for their proper rights to be equal with men. It was portrayed by many women writers with feministic perspective across the globe. Alice Munro is one such women writer who challenges the male domination through her women characters, who are the victims of men-centric world.
Throughout History, women have long struggled and fought for the same equality, justice, and rights as males in society. Historians have two opposing views of what life was like in Puritan society. One side argues that Puritan society was a golden age for women as they worked alongside their husbands, had an important role in the household. However, opposing historians argue that Puritan women were inferior to men in the society for five main reasons. Women were inferior because they were supposed to be silent company, they only received half the inheritance of their brothers, they were meant to have and take care of the children, they received harsher punishment for their wrongs, and they had to follow strict rules.
But after Mariam had a miscarriage everything changed. Rasheed became more sensitive and he seems to have a problem with his temper.

The protagonists in the novel are constantly being abused physically and mentally by their cynical husband.
Since the beginning of time, women have been viewed as the weaker sex; because of this, women have been cheated of their basic human rights. These are the same rights that men have always seen as a given for the male sex. These rights include: the right to education, to work, to have a voice, to vote, and many more. Throughout time, women have always had to fight for the same basic human rights to make them equivalent to man. In Mary Wollstonecraft’s book A Vindication of the Rights of Woman her argument is that woman have always been viewed as the weaker sex.
Throughout the course of history, they have been denied many freedoms that every man has and they want to be equal to their counterparts. In 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified in the United States of America and developed the women’s suffrage. Slowly, women are receiving the freedoms of being their own person rather than this stereotypical woman figure that has been long awaited for because they should already be treated equal among men. The key features that women have been viewed as stereotypical is femininity, care, nurture, maternity, and dependent upon men. Society expects women to have the ideal feminine characteristics; however, women do not always generally have those types of traits and can have some just like men.

The life of Women in the late 1800s. Life for women in the 1800s began to change as they pushed for more rights and equality. Still, men were seen as better than women, this way of thinking pushed women to break out from the limitations imposed on their sex. In the early 1800s women had virtually no rights and ultimately were not seen as people but they rather seen as items of possession, it wasn’t until the late 1800s that women started to gain more rights. The Civil War actually opened opportunities for women to gain more rights, because with many of the men gone to war women were left with the responsibilities that men usually fulfilled during that time period.
By Sojourner Truth, it says that men talk about and think that slaves and women are needed to be intelligent, but how does that have to involve with women 's nor African-Americans’ rights? To put into other words, many people were treated and talking to slaves and most women poorly.and stating that having rights need to be smart? This is basically saying that most women and slaves are stupid. The fight for women 's rights were a big impact on the Civil War of the aftermath because women women were doing many of the men’s work to the point they were demanding the right as an avenge men like as the slaves who were fighting for their
Introduction Hook: Since the beginning of time, the existence of women and men has been undeniably considered as one of the integral factors that forms our society as it is today. Despite their parallel existence and contribution to the growth of the society, it was considered that women were not treated equal to men both in domestic and working circumstances, leading to a wave of movements demanding equal rights for women, known as feminism. Despite its success in claiming benefits for mistreated women in the past, recent feminism actions and point of views have gone above their original purpose, and created negative impacts and false mindset as its consequences, 2. Credibility I have done some in-depth research about this matter to prepare for the speech, and I myself do not stand for contemporary feminist. 3.
HI, Miah you are right the Women 's Movement did change the view of women. However, there were different phases this movement. The 1700 's,1830’s,1837,1920’s and the 70’s are just a few eras where women fought to be treated as equals. The right to an education and freedom from slavery were all issues that impacted this movement. “Women had to create their own antislavery organizations because they were being excluded from many of the men’s organization” (pg.321 Social Inequality).
Women were considered weaker than men, therefore they were not treated equally. Women at this time were made totally dependant on men, and they had very few rights in their lives. Some examples of their hardships include: they were not allowed to vote, married women had no property rights, they were unable to be fully educated, etc. When the movement began, there were a few women who stood apart from the rest. Elizabeth Cady Stanton is one example of these women.
It was because of this unfair treatment and restrictions, that women started to really question what it meant to be a women. This all lead to the Suffrage Movement. Necessary because it would make it illegal for any citizen, regardless of gender to be denied the right to vote. Not only this but, it granted that “All men and women are created equal,” and therefore have constitutional rights. The 19th Amendment was the culmination of the women 's suffrage movement.
The US government should enforce laws protecting women’s control over themselves, enable them to get good jobs and be well represented politically. Women all around the world have, for centuries, struggled to gain rights. “Historically men exercised enormous power over women controlling sexuality and reproduction,” (Wichterich, Christa Sexual and Reproductive Rights). The struggle for women’s rights is not new. For example, throughout history, for a long time, women have struggled to gain rights for women specifically the right to vote (1820-1920).
The nineteenth amendment, gave women the right to vote. A right known as women 's suffrage. Women citizens did not share all of the same rights as men. The demand to vote became a centerpiece meaning woman not having the right to vote stood out to president Wilsons attention. Most people didn 't pay mind to women not having the right to vote.
