Storyboard Text

  • I've got to do so much around the house all day and take care of the children
  • MR. PRESIDENT HOW LONG MUST WOMEN WAIT FOR LIBERTY
  • VOTES FOR WOMEN
  • In the early 1800s, the role of women was defined by the 'women's sphere'; where women took care of the domestic issues in the house. In the late 1800s, women justified themselves helping with settlement houses as widening their 'domestic sphere.'
  • I refuse to stay in the house all day!
  • During WW1, women found the opportunity to branch out from their domestic sphere. They took up jobs in the workplace to replace the men that had gone to war and they also served in the navy and marines as nurses.
  • Women won the right to vote in 1920 after almost 100 years of fighting for suffrage. Women's suffrage was added as the 19th Amendment in the Constitution.
  • WOMEN STRIKE FOR PEACE ANE EQUALITY
  • After WW1, Women refused to return to their traditional household roles and instead sought to defy them. Flapper girls of the 1920s wore loose dresses, makeup, and cut their hair short; all were seen as inappropriate behavior to their mothers.
  • Women of the 1920s also had different views on how to live life and fashion. They loved to live fast-paced lives full of dancing and driving cars, discussing sex, smoking, and drinking. Their actions shocked their elders.
  • This is significant because in this decade woman started to shift their roles in society legally and socially. After winning the right to vote women began focusing on eliminating sex discrimination and challenging traditional gender roles.
