How We Claimed Justice...
United States
The women suffrage movement is what gave the women the right to vote now. Remember how Rosa Parks sat in the section meant for whites on the bus and insisted to stay there. Well, she was fighting for what she believed and that is what the women did. They protested for their rights and they wanted to vote. Women in the past did not have the right to vote or work, they had to clean the house, take care of the kids, and attend to whatever their man needed. It was not until 1893 that women had full rights in New Zealand. The women in Australia followed (1902). The Canadian, American, and the British women did not earn their rights until after World War I.
Votes For Women!!
Remembering Our Past....
Ready To Fight And Have A Voice!!!
The suffragettes would be sent to jail sometimes. They decided to go on a hunger strike and not eat the food that they gave them in jail. Once they noticed that they went on a hunger strike because they would not eat their food for more than a week they decided to force feed them. Some people may be asking what is forced feeding. Forced feeding is when you insert a tube down the persons nose and through one end they insert liquid food to feed the suffragette. This way of feeding is very painful. They would have at least two people hold down the suffragette while one person held the tube up the nose and another person to insert the food (liquid) through the other end of the tube.
-William Rooney.
How Did I Maximize My Resources?
The women of the U.S. demand was formed at the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848. After the Civil War, the women wanted their rights more than anything else. In 1869 a rift developed because of the fifteenth amendment, which gave the vote to the African American males. Women kept on fighting because they still didn't have the vote. Since they noticed that men got the vote, some suffragists thought that would make it easier for them to earn their vote. The two groups united and created a group called the National Suffrage Association to work for the suffrage on a federal level, they also did this so they can ask for more rights. This association is also called NAWSA, which is an abbreviation. At the same year, Wyoming entered the union, it was the first state with general women's suffrage. Later on older women started to resign; so the younger ladies took over the responsibility. Carrie Chapman was named president of the association. Alice Paul organized things like marches and also hunger strikes.
