I wish that my daughters that he same rights as their brothers
I wish I could go and get a good education so I can become a lawyer
I want to be able to vote someday
Women deserve the same rights as men... that includes the right to vote.
That is ridiculous! We must go slowly.
Yes, black men should have the right to vote, but so should women of color and women of any race.
We will never stop fighting for the rights and liberty we deserve!
You women are under arrest.
MR. PRESIDENT WHAT WILL YOU DO FOR WOMEN SUFFRAGE
As of the 1800's women were not being treated with the same respect as men. They could not get good education, hold important jobs, own their own land, or most controversial: even vote. During the Mid 1800's Many women started to realize these inequalities.
NO! How could he!
On July 19, 1848, the Seneca Falls Convention was held, bringing together hundreds of women's rights supporters. When Elizabeth Cady Stanton talked about the idea of women being able to vote many thought she was crazy, including Lucretia Mott.
Women Can Vote
After 70 years of fighting for our rights we finally have taken the step for women equality.
Decades later women continued to fight for rights starting the Women's Suffragists group. They organized protests including the the famous one outside the White House on August 18, 1917 where ten women picked demanding suffrage for women and were later arrested. Some of the lead suffragist reformers included women like Susan B. Anthony who delivered speeches about women's rights.
On August 18, 1920 the 19th amendment passed by a one vote margin giving women the right to vote. It was all thanks to one young man Harry Burn who broke the tie by voting against his anti-suffrage group. It had only been that morning that his mother had changed his heart, writing a note telling him to hurry and vote for suffrage. With just one word "aye" his vote changed the course of history.
Yes! he has had a change of heart! Women will be able to vote!
Women were thrilled! After decades of protesting and working hard they could finally vote!
