Transcript of Women's Rights in the Roaring 20's

Women's Rights in the Roaring 20s By Analisa Boza and Gabrielle Saupe Women all over the world have long fought for equal rights. For centuries, they have been treated unequally in politics, work life and even in their own homes. The 1920s proved to be a shifting decade for women's rights. From the United States, to Great Britain, to other parts of the world, women were able to join together to pressure the government into complying with their rights for equality and set the wheels in motion for future victories. Elizabeth Cady Stanton was the organizations first president of the National American Women's Suffrage Association. She was one of the most well known women in the 20s, due to her dedication and ambitious hope for a better future for women. Men in the 20s felt like they were superior or different than women and deserved better. Stanton worked to change this opinion. One of the most significant rights that American women gained in the 1920s was the freedom to vote. The 19th Amendment, ratified on August 18, 1920, granted women's suffrage after a decades-long battle. The right to vote gave many opportunities to women that would have never had. It gave women the chance to develop individually and be treated equally. Suds, Bobby. "Women's right's in the twenties ." N.p..

Under this law, women were to be granted federal protections for equality in all aspects of life. Men and women were created equal. Women also made gains in education.
By the end of the decade, they accounted for almost 40 percent of college degrees awarded in the United States, which was double what they earned at the turn of the century. mkulax, .

Women in the 1920s were able to make several advances in society, whether it was in their home or getting hired for a job. The 19th amendment granted women's suffrage. When a couple got divorced, they were both regarded as equal. Women's clothing and hair styles begin to change. They were also able to become more independent and self-reliant with the recent changes in how society viewed them. The 20s was a major turning point in history for women.
