1920 Voting Registration
The Seneca Falls Convention took place in New York in 1848 where women of all ages wrote the Declaration of Sentiments. This was written on the basis of gaining rights for women in areas such as politics and religion.
I played a vital role in helping women gain the right to vote.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton was one of the first feminists. She organized the Seneca Falls Convention of 1948. She wrote the Declaration of Sentiments and co-founded the National Women's Suffrage Association with Susan B. Anthony in 1869. She wrote the Woman's Bible. AWSA was also formed this year.
Rosie the Riveter
The WCTU was founded in 1874. They pushed for voting for women and eventually the Nineteenth Amendment was passed in 1920. This guaranteed that all women had the right to vote. People such as Jane Addams, the mother of social work, got to vote for the first time. She wrote "Utilization of Women in City Government".
The Story of an Hour was written in 1894 by Kate Chopin. Her writing was fundamental in the passing of the nineteenth amendment. She worked alongside Lillian Wald to achieve this.
Rosie the Riveter became a feminist symbol during World War 2. She was designed to help motivate women in the workforce during this time period.
