Come sit, and I'll tell you the story of women all around the country!
Once Upon A Time when I was a young girl, women were expected to take care of the house and not participate in the happenings of the world. They thought we were feeble and only suited for taking care of children. But oh were they wrong!
But just like me, many women didn't want to stay at home. We wanted to vote, have a say in the world not have to stay inside. Some of my friends, who had similar ideas to me, there names were Susan B. Anthony, the Grimke sisters Sojourner Truth and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
In 1848 they even held a conference called the Seneca Falls convention. There had never been a meeting like this in history. Women all around the country gathered and talked about women's rights especially the right to vote.
WE WANT TO VOTE!!
But the male leaders of the country didn't want women to have power. They wanted them to stay as the homemakers and not have the power to vote. So for over 60 yrs things stayed the same.
We didn't give up. We fought for our voices to be heard! And finally we won. In 1920, the 19th amendment to the constitution was passed and certain women were allowed to vote.
