be ready to answer!

2) What were people who wanted to end slavery called?
3) How did the Abolitionists influence the anti-slavery movement?

Alcohol Abuse,
Schools, Prisons, Help people with special needs

Through anti-slavery societies, newspapers, books, and lectures. (as well as helping on the Underground Railroad)
Women sought equal rights as men, such as:
-Equal education and pay
-The right to enter all-male trades
(doctors, lawyers, etc.)
: the right to vote.
-The right to own property
-Suffrage in Wyoming, 1890
-Some access to more jobs and better education
*All U.S. Women won't get the right to vote until 1920
Move around the room to 6 different stations
Analyze each cartoon with your partner
Write down your thoughts on your Group-Recording Sheet.
Be prepared to discuss near the end of class!
Both groups were treated as 2nd-rate citizens
-> they did not have the same rights as white men
The Seneca Falls Convention
1848: 200 women and 40 men draft a "Declaration" outlining the changes they wanted.
Women did not achieve all the reforms they wanted, but did win:
-The right to own land in 6 states
WA = 1910*
Think about these questions:
-What are Political Cartoons?

-What are the purpose of Political Cartoons?

-What might be some benefits of using Political Cartoons to relate an idea (rather than using words)?
Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.
"Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex."
The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), proposed in 1923 was an attempt to guarantee equal rights for both men and women
1972 - 1983: comes close to becoming an amendment, but is 3 states shy
It's still not an amendment
The U.S. Constitution still does not have any direct protections for the rights of women.
Example: "Gender Wage Gap" or how much on average women make per every male dollar earned:
Worst = Wyoming: 64.4 cents/man $1
Best = New York: 89 cents/man $1
Washington = 79 cents/man $1

Many women abolitionists also began to fight for women's rights.
