Women are important figures in history. From the start, women played a vital role into shaping the world we know today. Even as the belief of many that stated that women couldn’t perform as well as men in anything, it has been proven wrong time and time again. As time passed, women fought their way up the ladder to gain the equality that of a man’s and respect from the opposite sex. Unfortunately, after many years of agony and disparity, the war for equality has not yet been conquered.
The Women’s Right Movement changed the lives of the American Women for the better, due to gaining the right to vote, access to higher education, and the opportunity to enter the workforce. Before the reform movements of Women’s right, the American women were discriminated in society, home life, education, and the workforce. Women in the 1800s could not only vote, but they also were forbidden to speak in public. They were voiceless and had no self-confidence, they dependent men, since they had little to no rights (Bonnie and Ruthsdotter). Before the reform movement, the American Women were voiceless, they had no say in society, however the reform movement will soon change that.
CHAPLIN TO CHURCHILL INTRODUCTION There was a time when women used to face many problems while living in the society. However, this trend has been changed but women have to follow various tactics in order to maintain harmony in the society and to stay at par with men. It took a lot for them to resolve the struggles of equal rights and to implement the same in real world without giving rise to any controversy. A few years ago women were never seen in influential roles due to many discriminatory factors but now the whole era has been changed and many women can be seen performing really well even better than men. This only has become possible due to the hardships faced by women in old times and how they fought for their rights
Although women barely had a voice in their lives, some women stood up and spoke out about how the oppression negatively impacted their lives which changed the way society viewed housewives. There was not much progress for women, however, this did help women to continue to fight for their rights and equality decades later and continue to do so
Opinions are unavoidable, but the law is consequential. The feminist movement is not fighting for laws and regulations to empower themselves, they are raising awareness and sharing facts and opinions in hopes of change. Altogether, through numerous campaigns, women have begun to stand up for themselves, their sexual image, and most importantly, their rights. Hollywood and political advocates have symbolized the feminist movement to gain much needed momentum. Consequently, without these factors, awareness for this movement would be at a minimum until ultimately they would be depleted.
However, despite this, women were given many new opportunities to contribute to society during the Industrial Revolution. "A woman's ability to earn a wage and retain those earnings was one of the most important transformations wrought by new machinery" (Zlotnick, pg 16). So, despite poor working conditions and salary, the Industrial Revolution still caused women to become a more active part of the workforce as well as become independent outside of their husbands. Even during the Industrial Revolution, women began demanding more rights. In the early 1800’s, they were not allowed to continue school after grammar school.
Women have that kind of feeling contrast to men who always want to capture the power and try to maintain it.

I feel as if I have a responsibility as a young women to continue to fight for the equal rights of people, unbiased of race, gender, and sexual orientation, all over the world. This revolution influenced my life because I had a strong exposure to it. Feminism shows up on social media feed, ads on television, and in the movies I watch. With all of the media out there on the subject, it would have found its way to my brain in some form at some point in my lifetime. Feminism is not only a fight for the equal rights of women to men, but of every person as equal individuals.
She played a huge role in the women’s rights movement and became one of its founders. Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s refusal to compromise on Women’s Rights inspired many other women to follow her example and led to an important change in the history of the United States, and that is suffrage for women. Throughout history, women tended to keep getting less and less rights. Roman women had almost as many rights as men, and had many of the rights that women in the seventeenth century were denied. Married women had the right to enter into contracts and own and dispose of property, as well as having certain limited rights.
They tried their best to make women educated, to make them free from the shackles of slavery and discrimination on several grounds. As a result, the same women proved their ability by working for the freedom of the country. Yet their suffering and distress remained endless.
