Because of this Lytton opened Suffragette events in Knightsbridge, London, using her social status to attract large crowds. In order to promote the movement postcards featuring Lytton wearing her Suffragette medals were sold. During this time, Lytton was quickly gaining position as a suffragette and had great influence over the women.
The women of this movement were fighting for something they believed they deserve. Because of the Seneca Falls Convention and the Declaration of Sentiments and Resolution, women were able to express their own opinions. The women’s rights movement led to many different events, impacted other countries, and created a new amendment. The feminist efforts in the mid 1800s were successful enough to allow women to take on occupations and educations they weren’t able to obtain

Successful in her mission to educate and spread awareness in Beijing and all across the world, Clinton’s speech led to “Beijing [legitimizing women’s rights] and [galvanizing] media attention to the issue” (Worden 35) which ultimately “energized the feminist movement and connected it more to the global human rights movement as well as the United Nations and governments” (Worden 36). In Clinton’s speech, she did not strive to make women feel sorry for themselves, but to show that women can overcome the hardships they face and the level of potential change has if women take initiative. Though progress has been made, the steps ahead add up to more than a mile. A survey taken from Penn. Schoen.

As Ruth Rosen explains throughout her book, The World Split Open, the Women’s Rights Movement certainly resulted in significant changes in the way Americans perceived the woman’s role in a variety of situations. From home to academia to politics, the women’s movement helped to make the changes necessary so that women would be respected and treated as equals in any field they chose to pursue.

To begin, Rosen often discussed the “nameless” problems that plagued women throughout the 1950s and into the 60s. Too often, millions of
In the “Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions,” Elizabeth Cady Stanton talks about how women have been oppressed since the beginning of time and the resolutions that need to be made in the government, so that women receive the rights they are entitled to.
