Women's Rights
Brief History
Can you believe that in the United States and other places girls during the 1800's were told that they were not as smart as boys? In fact it has been this way for hundreds to thousands of years. When girls grew up and got married the law said that they had to obey their husbands so they were basically treated like slaves. But many women didn't think that was fair. That's why in 1848 a group of women met in Seneca Falls, New York to discuss women's rights, and that is how the women's movement began. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony led the group. At this convention women talked about
towards women. They knew that it could affect women and girls for
to come.

un-fun fact
It will take
50 years for women and men to get equal
in the United States.
happy fact!
Women do not have the same health and
rights as men. Roughly one women dies every minute because of pregnancy complications, so that means every hour, 60 women die around the world. Some women do not have a say over what happens to their bodies. For example in lots of countries around the world, if a woman is sexually abused, the

Women around the world are still struggling for their rights. For example, in Saudi Arabia women can not drive, child marriage still exists, but is not common. In China, some parents who have a baby girl will put their her for adoption because it is considered "bad luck." West Virginia has the worst women's rights in the USA, and in Islam, a man can say, "I divorce thee, I divorce thee, I divorce thee," and then the man and the woman will be officially divorced without having to do any paper work and the woman can not do the same.
