Life cycle of women's suffrage movement the four stages
Stage One Emerge:
In 1848 groups of activist gathered in Seneca Falls, New York to address the problem of women should be granted the right to vote. Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote the the Declaration of Sentiments that address the idea that all men and women are created equal. Both men and women should have the right to liberty, life , and pursuit of happiness.
Many women are agitated that only men were granted voting rights as a citizen.
Many men at the time think that women should only be a good house wife and take cares of the kids and not waste time fighting for rights to vote.

In 1890, the two group joined and created the National Women's Suffrage Association were formed by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

Stage Four Institutionalization:
In 1918 president Woodrow Wilson support for the women's suffrage amendment to pass. He address the senate to adopt the amendment at the end of world war I.
In 1919, the Senate passes the 19th Amendment and the ratification of the women's suffrage begin.
In August 26, 1920. The 19th Amendment is finally ratified into the constitution granting women the full voting rights.
Today, women continues to fight for equality such as equal pay, sexism, etc.
Why do you think people sometimes protest but other people do not find it necessary to protest?
I think that some people might think that it is pointless to protest because at that time they might think that is is nearly impossible to push and protest the right to vote for women because women are typically view as only house wives and their role in society is to please the needs of men and taking care of the house and children.
Why did these people protest and organize to change the world around them?
These women protest to make a social change and to prove that women are not just house wives they are capable of doing anything. Women at the time also felt that they should be treated the same as men because they are all human. The rights should be shared by both men and women.
Why do some protest succeed while others fail?
Some succeed because they are really engage in changing the whole system in the federal level as well as societal level. They formed organization and rally for people to join the protest and they went from State to State to address the issue of equal rights for women. While others Fail because they probably do not have the motivation to continue to push for equal voting rights and accepted that they will never be grated these rights.

Many felt that certain issues are unjust and they work together and succeeded with adding new legislation to grant rights or abolishing the unjust laws.By being a part of the social movement is will significantly change my life and the life of others by changing the current situation and forming a new opportunity for the generations to come.
