The women’s rights movement and the nineteenth amendment gave women a lot of hope for their future and their daughters ' futures.
One of the biggest factors that caused the roles of women in the united States to change during the 1920’s was the work they did during World War I. While the men were serving overseas, the women stepped into the men’s jobs and made up the majority of the labor force at that time. This allowed women the chance to show that they can do some of the same jobs that men could do. After the war, the number of women in the workforce increased by twenty-five percent. This opened up more opportunities all over the country to earn their place in providing for their families. Another thing that changed for women, during the 1920’s was “flappers”.

The Roaring Twenties were a grand time, and full of changes for women both mentally and physically. Women were able to break away from the confines of a society that men bound them to for so long and the results of this shift are still evident in our society today. Because of the emerging of the new woman and the Flapper girls, women are able to vote, express themselves through self-determined styles, be equal to men in positions in society, and have more confidence as a gender at large.

Even with all of these qualities women are looked down upon, and have to fight for things that should be giving to them.

In the mid-1800s, many Americans had concerns about the issues occurring and the impact they made on the United States. To put an end to these numerous issues, many Americans decided to form groups, organizations, and also individuals. They would come up with a variety of strategies to make a change.

Women, throughout history, have had a hard time being respected and treated equally to men. Since times have changed, women now are legally and somewhat socially equal to men. Women can now vote, have any job they want, and own property under their own names. Women of this generation proved that they could do whatever they desire to do. This was not always the situation.
With years of rebellions and protests made against many of these issues, women have come a long way from where they used to be. A big movement that was established was called the Women’s Suffrage Movement. This was the time where many protests were occurring so that these women would be allowed to receive the same rights men had.

The Roaring Twenties was a prime era for women. Because of the toils of many strong women, ideals were flipped on their head, to America’s benefit. In the late 1800’s, two women, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, quickly realized that women would not be able to share their political views unless given the right to vote. Because of the fact that women had basically no other societal roles besides housework, they were not respected during this time period.

We all know that women didn 't have as many rights as men, and they still don 't. Women can now do more than they used to, but they still aren 't equal with men. They have had to fight for so many things like the right to vote and to be equal to men. The 19th amendment, the one that gave women the right to vote, brought us a big step closer. The Equal Rights Movement also gave us the chance to have as many rights as men. Women have always stayed home, cleaned the house, and didn 't even get an education.
