In 1833, she was the only woman to speak at the American Anti-Slavery Society’s meeting in Philadelphia. She tested the language of the society’s constitution and fortified support when many delegates were doubtful. Just 4 days later, Mott and approximately 30 other black and white women founded the Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society, a place for women’s voices to be heard for the cause. Modeling their society after male organizations, the PFASS drafted a constitution and established an administrative body. Like other women’s auxiliaries they embarked on the traditional spectrum of activities: “the women raised funds for the Liberator and for the American Anti-Slavery Society.
Kelly uses her time before the National American Women’s Suffrage Association to convince those in the audience that child labor is a women’s suffrage issue; that the mother’s, aunts, and sisters have a responsibility to help these children, which they cannot currently fulfil. She appeals directly to them by using little girls as examples in almost every paragraph, the repetition of “while we sleep,” and appeals directly to the hearts of a mother or parent. Kelly understands that this group’s main concern is the right to vote, and once they receive it, she wants to ensure that they will use that power to end child labor. Her speech was given fifteen years before women are finally granted the right to vote, yet it gives the members of the
The movement started as a convention in 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York. The convention discussed the rights of women, and decided women needed to have a political identity. On August 26, 1920 the 19th amendment was added to the constitution, which said no one should be denied the right to vote based on sex. After 72 years of protests, rallies and marches, women were finally guaranteed the right to vote (The fight for women’s suffrage 2009 & The 19th amendment n.d). Freedom
Based on the evidence from the passage, the author first talks about how they met, and became friends. Then, the author talks about how Anthony became more interested in women’s rights, because of Stanton. Not only that, but the author wrote about how they both wanted equal rights for women. Then, the author talks about how they worked together by finding equal rights and suffrage associations, organized annual conventions, met with lawmakers, and campaigned in several states. Not only that, but according to the text, “They also published The Revolution, a weekly newspaper that advocated for women’s rights, from 1868 to 1872, and co-edited the first three volumes
As political history specialist Richard J. Walton contends, “at a time when women were usually relegated in political campaigns to stamping envelopes and other such 'women 's work,’ the Progressive Party gave women substantive jobs and campaigned for broader women’s rights.” For instance, Wallace “included policies on women in the workforce in his campaign platform [...] and (their) ability to work both inside and outside of the home.” As well as advocating for women’s rights, Henry Wallace fought to break racial and ethnic barriers, at a time when racism was institutionalized in some parts of the country. In a speech delivered in New York City, on September 12th, 1946, Henry Wallace said, The price of peace - for us and for every nation in the world - is the price of giving up prejudice, hatred, fear and ignorance.... Hatred breeds hatred. The doctrine of racial superiority produces a desire to get even on the part of its victims. If we are to work for peace in the rest of the world, we here in the United States must eliminate racism from our unions, our business organizations, our educational institutions, and our employment practices. He believed that the feelings of pride and prejudice are what cripples humans.
The organization was called the International Council of Women. The International Council of Women was an organization founded by Susan B. Anthony, May Wright Sewell, and Frances Willard to cooperate with other groups and agencies, such as the League of Nations, to advertise and expand health, peace, equality and education around the world. They held their first convention March 25th through April 1st in Washington D.C. The convention involved Ireland,
This speech by Florence Kelley is filled with numerous rhetorical strategies. Giving her speech in Philadelphia, she touched the hearts of many. Appealing to the emotions of the other women in the audience, Kelley got her point across. She despised child labor as she felt it was dangerous and inappropriate. By using rhetorical strategies such as imagery, anaphora, and forced teaming, she engages the right audience (women attending the suffrage convention) whom were already seeking change.
She was originally from Moorestown, New Jersey, went to college at Swarthmore, and was a hardworking student. “by the time Alice was a junior, she had become a serious student who often hung a ‘ busy’ sign on her door and studied through the night,” (kops 1, 8). Military like leadership of a party called the National Women’s Party, “Feminist organizer Alice Paul (1885-1977) cofounded the National Woman 's Party and led the militant wing of the woman suffrage movement” (“Commentary on Alice Paul”). The National women’s party was a group of young women fighting for women’s right to vote using protests. Alice made many other strides towards equal rights like getting the women’s party to fight on a national level not at the state level.
Anthony started out by wanting to speak at temperance rallies, but could not because she was a woman (Susan, House). If women could vote in elections, people would start taking them seriously in politics. In 1866, Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who was also part of the equal rights movement, started the American Equal Rights Association. This organization believed that all of
After protesting in front of the White House, the president decided to support women's suffrage. Soon Congress passed the amendment. Once they passed the amendment, it was the state's decision on whether or not they wanted to ratify it. Finally in 1920, women won the right to vote. Paul was still not satisfied, she spent the rest of her life working on a new Constitutional Amendment, known as the Equal Rights Amendment.
As women become breadwinners and started working in factories they wanted a greater voice in society. No longer willing to sit at home taking care of the family women became increasingly active in the quest for their own suffrage. They want a right to vote in order to elect politicians that had progressive beliefs. The first women 's rights meeting in the United States, was held at Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848. At this convention, the delegates called for the right to vote, among other women 's rights.
Clearly, Elizabeth Stanton had to be confident to speak to crowds and to publish books with very bold ideas that supported women. During the 1870s, she traveled around the United States speaking to large crowds. The lecture she often delivered was her “Our Girls” speech, which was about the importance of education for young girls and promoted equality for women. Confidence was also displayed by her when she spoke in front of three hundred people and read the Declaration of Sentiments at the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848. Angered by the Bible’s statements about women serving men, she wrote “The Woman’s Bible”.
Regarding Anderson Cooper 's town hall meeting with the three Republican candidates last night: After the meeting, Laura Ingraham made a comment on what Mr. Trump could do to encourage women (some of whom are offended by his comments, issues, and opinions) to vote for him. To paraphrase, she suggested Mr. Trump embrace the fact that there are many, many intelligent, articulate, strong women in our country - some of whom he should place on his staff to help run our country if he 's elected. What an excellent idea! The country needs to get back on track to Make America Great Again, and women should be a part of that
Daughters of an affluent slave owner in Charleston South Carolina, they began by speaking to female audiences. Soon after, they were giving speeches to men and women. These speeches created controversy everywhere the Grimke sisters went. In 1837 in Massachusetts, an association of the state’s most popular Congregational church issued a statement condemning any women “who so far forget themselves as to itinerate in the character of public lecturers and teachers.” Attacks made against them spurred the Grimke’s to make the equality of women a more important part of their message. They began to write and speak about women’s rights as well as abolitionism, a decision which would soon help to split the abolition movement.
