(Lady Constance Lytton, 'Prisons and Prisoners ', William Heinneman, 1914, p.81) However, when introduced to The Suffragette Movement by Emmeline Pethick Lawrence, a treasurer for the WSPU, Lytton developed an interest in the movement and began to study the ‘Votes for Women’ papers to fully understand the movement. On the 28th January 1909 Lytton officially joined the WSPU and published a pamphlet, “No Votes for Women.”: A Reply To Some Recent Anti Suffrage Publications’(1909), in which she defended the right of women to vote. In February 1909, Lytton attended a deputation to the Prime Minister, Herbert Henry Asquith. During this demonstration, Lytton was arrested for the first time. On the 25th of February Lytton was sentenced at Bow Street magistrates court to two months in Holloway Prison.

She is especially known for the speech she did in Seneca falls and her use of rhetorical devices to make sure she has people’s attention and show how serious she was about the subject. In Seneca Falls Keynote Address, Elizabeth Cady Stanton uses anaphora’s, metaphors and allusion to persuade the audience to show that women should be treated equally just like men and should be more appreciated. Due to this speech it started the whole revolution in making sure women would be granted more rights as American citizens. To begin with, Elizabeth was one of the leading activist for the women’s suffrage movement in the early 19th century.
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
Faulkner wrote many novels that reflected the themes of social issues during the Great Depression. These novels would later become part of “Novels, 1930-1935” which includes Faulkner's complete works. Willa Cather was an author of the realist movement and she became known for her depictions of the American frontier which included the ideas of that time period. Since she was a female author in that time, the fact that she even wrote stories being a female herself was huge.

In the early 1800’s women were expected to confine themselves to the sphere of domestic concerns. They were unable to obtain a real education or pursue a professional career, could not own property after marriage, and were denied the right to vote. Although initially excluded from the abolitionist movement, William Lloyd Garrison’s abolitionist newspaper The Liberator was one of the first to welcome women into the movement. “Garrison encouraged women to join with their congregations in pouring out ‘supplication[s] to heaven on behalf of the slaves’ ” (Jeffrey, p 18). By the 1830’s, thousands of women were involved in the cause to abolish slavery.
Anthony’s speech made several logical, ethical and emotional appeals which is what made her empowering and memorable speech set the tone for the women’s rights movement for decades to come. By stating the preamble of the Federal Constitution she built her credibility because it is reputable and it is a document that we built our country on.

Instead of just saying that women should have rights they do not have and making an argument, she states that the United States Constitution already guarantees her and other women the right to vote.
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
