Women used many different methods to earn the right to vote in the Women’s Suffrage Movement. One method women used to earn support is that they organized a parade in Washington, D.C., the same day the president was coming into town so that there was large crowds. Many of the people in the crowd were men who, along with drinking also disagreed with the right for women to vote. They began to yell then even throw objects at the women walking in the parade. Eventually, the police walked away giving the men the opportunity to attack.
After her husband's death, she created the Women's Social and Political Union along several colleagues in 1903, which had the main purpose of taking direct action to win the vote. This organisation gained recognition for its high-profile tactics and violent acts such as bombing and arson. Her daughters, specially Christabel and Sylvia, also joined the WSPU and its cause. Their motto was “Deeds, not words” also written on Emily Davison's tombstone. Her involvement with the movement got her arrested on numerous occasions and she also went on hunger strikes which ended with unfortunate episodes of force-feeding which she explains in the

In other words, these murders have been blown off often with a, “she had it coming” instead of properly attributing the fault of the murder to the murderer (Our Jack). Women of the time were terrified to have to walk the streets alone for any reason, and would be shamed for doing so should anything happen to them regardless of their situation (Our Jack). It also sparked many “puritan campaigns” against prostitution, which shows where the people’s priorities truly lied (Still Public). This leads into today’s time, in which not much at all has changed. Regarding the Jack the Ripper museum, the man behind it has been quoted as saying that his museum, “is absolutely not celebrating the crime of Jack the Ripper but looking at why and how
But, this play has shown me the flaws in that society as the author depicts them such as abortion and homosexuality. I found the play to be somewhat difficult to follow along with because there were so many characters that were speaking especially in the first scene. The first scene depicts a chaotic business area as the clerks were working and the numbers are called out at a high speed.

I loved the different ways the first scene is shown in the live play as the chaos is heard through the sounds and constant movement.

During The Red Scare, there was a huge breakout of mass hysteria due to fears about the threat of communism . The way the US responds to Communism threat is: “A number of government officials took strong, and sometimes unlawful, actions against labor leaders, foreigners, and others” (manythings.org 165) …… Similarly to The Crucible, the people who were put on trial and accused without proper evidence were innocent which caused mass hysteria as well. An example from Mary Warren tries to tell the lies that the girls are covering: “I cannot tell how, but I did. I - I heard the other girls screaming, and you, Your Honor, you seemed to believe them, and I - It were only sport in the beginning, sir, but then the whole world cried spirits, spirits, and I - I promise you, Mr. Danforth, I only thought I saw them
She suffered discrimination and harsh laws that were aimed at demoting the status of women in the society. Unlike in her younger years prior to 1980 when Marji lived freely and expressed herself without fear, the introduction of Islamic laws marked the beginning of the dark days in her life.

One of the main things she incorporates throughout her speech is hyperbole. She uses this exaggeration in a way that makes sure every single person who leaves the convention after her speech will know exactly what her message was.

What they accomplished, showed that through willpower and courage, anything can be achieved.
To what extent were changing attitudes in British society the major reason why some women received the vote in 1918? In the middle of the C19th, women were seen as equivalent to their children in the eyes of the law and ruling men. As a result, they were denied the vote in 1867 and 1884 even as more men were enfranchised. However, by 1918 some women had gained the right to vote in national elections, an issue that was partly due to attitudes towards women having been changed drastically throughout the period.
Six well-bred women stood before a judge in the Washington D.C. police court on June 27, 1917. Not thieves, not drunks, not prostitutes, like the usual attendants there. They included a university student, an author of nursing books, a prominent campaign organizer, and 2 former school teachers. All were educated accomplished and unacquainted with criminal activity, but on that day they stood in a court of law with their alleged offense, “Obstructing traffic”.
